    I need a complete and accurate list of EXACTLY the parts I need to convert my 6-lug 10bolt front to an 8-lug. Even better, if anybody with a huge brain and free time is bored, NAPA parts numbers would icing on the cake...

    I love you guys.:D

    All you really need is the correct size spindles and bearing hubs. They made two dif sizes. small bearing and big bearing spindles. I'm about 96% certain the calipers are the same and you should get 3/4 ton pads cuz they are taller- bigger rotor but you can live with 1/2 ton pads. They just won't utilize the inner most part of the rotor brake surface.

    you dont need new spindles... all you need is the backing plates, the hubs and the rotors

    Yes- x2 but you have to make sure the spindles match your hubs. Forgot about the backing plates

    All 10-bolts have the same spindles, so he should be fine.
