    Im about to put a 14 bolt in my k5 and will have to run 6 lug up front and 8lug in the rear which would suck ass if I need to put on a spare or just to rotate the tires. there an adaptor which converts 8 to 6 lug but cost $196 from echobit http://www.echobit.com/cgi-bin/gravityfab/products.cgi?userkey=3&product=3 but you have to turn down the hub and axle face plates my question is
    1. any body run this, if you do, do you like it pros/cons
    2. what the hell does turn turning down the hubs and axle faces mean?
    3. would it be cheaper to turn front into 8 lug/ how much?
    thanks for help
