Redrilling axle flanges?

Can I have my 9`` axle flanges redrilled ? Can it be done? Who can do it? They have the 5 on 4 & 1/2 pattren. I need the 5 on 5 1/2 pattern. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

I had Moser make me new axle shafts with a new lug pat..
I went from 5 on 4 1/2 to 6 on 5.5
They look nice..

If the flange is big enough there shouldn't be a problem. A general machine shop might not have the equipment to do it, so you might have to send them to Moser.

Moser plugged and redrilled my axle shafts from 6 on 5-1/2 to 5 on 5-1/2 for $80 including return shipping.

I'm no 9" expert, but it seems to me that most of the 9" that came with the small bolt pattern were the weak 28 spline variety found in passenger cars. It makes sence to me that if you are going through all this... to al least end up with the bigger axleshafts...especially if you dont have a locker yet... the larger spline axleshafts would have the bolt pattern you need as well.
