    Can a Six lug D44 be converted to a eight lug D44. If it can what needs to be done and how hard is it to do?

    You just need an 8 lug hub and rotor. Not much more to it than packing the front bearings.

    nope, it is not. The 8 lug backing plates and the 8 lug bearing hubs are different also
