    check out my post .. i just did it , wasnt to bad... just gotta find a machine shop that isnt gonna rip you off and if you run aluminum wheels you may have to modify them a bit dependiing on how think they are.

    So the adapter wasnt something you bought, you had it machined??

    well half and half... i bought the adaptors and hardware from ck5 member--tonyp. but then i had to have my old hubs machined down so the adaptors would fit.since the diameter of 8lug hubs is bigger than the 6 lug. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
