Changing Bolt Patterns?

Hey, I'm looking to get a Waggy D44 front, but it's 6 lug. It's possible to change the bolt pattern right? But how hard/expensive would it be?

You can do it 2 ways,

Theres a company that sells adapter plates for different lug patterns, the problem is it will increase your axle width by 2"-4".

OR you can buy Hybrid Axle shafts with your Waggy Spline count and 5 on 4.5 lugs.

Neither is cheap.

Yeah, you could do that if you wanted to deal with not being able to properly rotate your tires, and carry 2 different spares all the time.....yuck...

This thread is ****ed. With a REAL D44 front, the smallest bolt pattern you can run is the ford 5x5.5. That's be done by using ford knuckles (weak) and ford brakes.


You have to get new rims, plane and simple. If you want them all to match, you've got to touch the rear...



Depending, you may be able to re-drill your current axle shafts. I wouldn't.



Anywho, I'd strongly recommend ditching the rear you have. Seeing as how you're going to get a new front end, now might be the time to go to some low gears, eh? Izusu makes an axle called the 12 Bolt - It comes factory with disk brakes, 4.56s, often a stiff LSD, a drop out third and all steel housing. It's like a 9" actually, just somewhat smaller. I'd suggest swapping one in. The bolt patten will match the waggy 6-lug.


Or, go with a toyota 8" rear. 6 lug, plenty of aftermarket, stock low gears, etc.
