    What is involved in this conversion? How much could I expect to pay for the parts? Would the parts from a factory 8 lug 10 bolt work? Thanks!

    All 6 and 8 lug parts are interchangable from the D44 and 10B from the knuckles outward. The only thing you need to watch out for are the spindles. Make sure if you take off the rotors off one of the fronts, take the spindle off with it. '77 and newer spindles are all the same, but the '76 and older use a smaller bearing for the spindles. You need the correct matching spindles to make the larger bearing rotors work properly. Even the '76 and older stuff can be used on the '77 and newer as long as you reuse the '76 spindle if the rotor came off of it. Sound confusing?

    When In Doubt, Whip It Out!

    Confusing... yes and no.. I'll just make sure they are both from a 77 and later truck... which I think they are but I'll double check.
