    Don't know if this has been posted before but I did a search and didn't find anything. Sorry if it's a repeat.

    Just bought the parts for a 6-lug to 8-lug conversion and thought I would share the info I found for the cheapest places to get parts.

    Hub/Rotor Assembly
    From: RockAuto.com
    Brand: Raybestos Red Line
    Part Number: 56287R
    Price: $41.89 plus shipping ($9.95 for two)

    3/4 Ton Backing Plates
    From: GMPartsDirect.com
    Brand: AC Delco
    Part Numbers: 14023421 & 14023422
    Price: $62.15 plus shipping ($27.34 for both)

    Everything else swaps over from 1/2 ton (all 10-bolts, late model D44s). Brakes, spindles, knuckles, etc.
    Rock Auto also has spindle needle bearing kits (bearing and oil seals) for only $8.70 plus shipping each. That's $5 less than NAPA, including shipping charges.
    I got the rest of the new seals and bearings from my local parts place but if you're really cheap, all the 1/2 ton stuff swaps over for those, too.

    They alt to sticky this. Heck, thats so much cheaper than buying a 3/4 front axle or buying the swap parts from another party.

    Unfortunately, the price on the hub/rotor assys went up some time in the past three days.

    On Tuesday, they were $40, now they're now $60. :rolleyes:

    Still cheaper than most places, though.

    Rock Auto must have gotten wise.

    I can get the hub and rotor assm. through work, so I think it will cost me less than that. Ok just checked it out for myself and the place is in NC.

    Crap, I'm bringing one way back from the dead, but how many have done it this way?

    I see the backing plates are different, but are the calipers?

    Calipers from dana 44 to 10bolt are interchangable as are the 1/2 to 3/4 tons. The only difference is the thread type for the break line between the 44 and 10b. The 1/2 to 3/4t is an internal difference thats all. Physically it doesnt matter what you do. I have 10b calipers on my 44.
