From your original post you sy you are doing an axle swap. Now you are saying you have done the swap.
What did you do for;
Adapting the flipped D300
These are just the few that jump to mind.
Not saying it cannot be done nor am I saying you could not do it. But your question on the wheel studs is so very basic that it leads me to believe there is a bigger picture we are not seeing.
To answer your question. The Chevy and Ford parts are interchangeable provided you select the proper components. Chevy is a 6 bolt spindle and the Ford a 5 bolt. Each has big and small bearing spindles. Google Mr. N`s Dana 44 site and you can get a wealth of information.
The easiest way is to replace everything from the ball joint out with Ford 1/2 ton parts. Including the stub shaft. But before you jump to that route you need to ask how your going to do your steering. Are you going to try and keep some semblance of Ackerman or are you going to be satisfied with a high steer that handles like crap. Cross over or the crappy Y link ? What are your plans for scrub radius ?
Do you think your YJ master cylinder is going to work with the larger wheel cylinders of the 9 inch and larger piston of the front disc ?
