    The 8 lug is froma k20 with 4.11 gears and the 6 lug is in my k5 with 3.73's. Can I put the 6 lug spindles(everything from the ball joints outboard) on the k20 d44?

    WHY? Because I lack the funds to find replacement 8 lug spindles. That's the only thing the frontend is missing. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    If they are the same year axle. They are the same spindle. 8 lug or 6 lug is the same. Only difference is the rotor and backing plate. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
