PLEASE HELP!!! DANA44 QUESTION

i am desperately trying to find information regarding how to change over my 1975 J10 dana44 front from 6 lug to 8 lug... it is a complete axle and all in good condition w/ flat top knuckles, so i'd like to reuse as many parts as i can. I've heard that I can use 3/4 ton early chevy rotors to change to 8 lug, but what all is involved, and exactly what parts will i need? I want to keep the same knuckles, so i will need to use 6 lug spindles like the ones i currently have.

anyone with any ideas of how to complete this please help me out w/ info!!
thanks in advance!

Re: PLEASE HELP!!! DANA44 QUESTION

i changed my 76 j10 d44 front axle from six lug to eight lug. i went to a junk yard and found flat top knuckles from a 3/4 cehvy d44 and swapped everything from the knuckle out used everything chevy from the knuckles out. except the stub shaft is the exact same. i am not sure if you can keep your knuckles and spindles and find the rotor and hub assembly from an 8 lug 44. i know the majority of 44;s are all the same

you can lead people to the truth, but you cant make them understand it.

My brother swapped J-20 axles into his wagoneer and found out that 15" wheels would not clear the front calipers. I don't remember if the rear was a problem or not.
