    do you just need to convert your existing D44 over to 8 lug or do you need a whole new frontend? Converting it is easy. All you need is the 8 lug hub & rotor assembly (not locking hub) and brake backing plates as long as you get the stuff from the same kind of axle you have. Internal vs External locking hub.

    do you have an internal locking hub axle now or an external locking hub axle. The spindles are the same as long as you use parts from the same style hub. If you have an internal hub then your current spindles with work with an 8 lug conversion as long as your donor parts are also from an internal hub. The brake caliper backing plate is also different from 6 to 8 lug along with the hub and rotor assembly.

    Locking hubs are the same as long as you don't cross styles internal to external.
