Looking for all the pieces necessary to convert my 6 lug front to 8 lug. Thanks.
Got it, how much do you wanna spend??
Do you really want an answer to that? No one ever WANTS to spend money...
i've got some 10 bolt 8 lug hub's and rotors. you will need to find some spindles and backing plates....althought i belive that the 6 lug and 8 lug spindles and backing plates are the same. You can also convert a dana 44 6 lug to an 8 lug using the 10 bolt 8 lug hubs, spindles, bearing and backing plate.
spindles same plates no. 3/4 ton 1" bigger rotor so plate is bigger.
Spindle's are the same as long as they are the big bearing units,but the backing plates are bigger in diameter for the 8 lug.I have the stuff as well.
PM sent. Thanks.
I found a guy that will sell you the whole setup for a couple hundred bucks! Call me at 760-899-5694 and i'll give you his number.
Educate me. What all do I need? Spindles, rotors, and backing plates, right? TIA.
if you are converting a 10 bolt all you will need is a set of big bearing hubs/rotors and backing plates(which are on all 10 bolt front and 76 or so up Dana 44's).The spindles,calipers,pads and even the wheel bearing's are the same.
If you are converting a 72-76 or so Dana 44 you will probably need a set of small bearing hubs and spindles and the 8 lug backing plates.Everything else is the same.Despite what alot of people say there is a difference in the 6 lug and 8 lug backing plates.
The first lesson is free.
It's a '89 front end, so I need the hubs/rotors & backing plates, which you have, so I'm good to go with our deal?
