    I have and 85 K5 blazer and I am wanting to swap my six lug ten bolt axle for an eight lug axle. My question is what kind of axle would work, what vehicle would have an eight lug axle that would work for me. I have a 14ff in the rear that is and eight lug and a six lug ten bolt up front and I really don't wanna run two six lug wheels with two eight lug wheels.

    You could swap axles, or just find an 8 lug 10 bolt and swap out the hubs, rotors, and brakes. that way you don't have to find a 10 bolt with the same gear ratio as you 14ff.
