Re: Ford 8.8 5 lug to 6 lug

I'm guessing you could do it using wheel spacers/ adapters. I've been thinking about this, if i use a 5 or 6 lug d44 i'll have to convert from 5x4.5 to 5x5.5 or to a 6 lug pattern. I'm not sure if it would be cheeper to have the shafts re-drilled and drums redrilled or adpaters though. I would like my rear to be a little wider since it is an inch or 2 narrower than the front.
