Bolt pattern Issues..

Ok I have a HPD44 front that is 5 on 5.5 bolt and a FF60 rear that is 8 lug..

Which would be easier to find part for to switch it's bolt pattern?

And what parts will I need?

Thank..

The front is about 1000 times easier to swap out, find any 8-lug Dana 44 and use the knuckles-out from it on your axle.

I moved to 5x5.5 years ago because of a good deal on some rims. In hindsight, I shoulda stuck with 8-lug.
