Is a few hours of your time not worth more than $66? I can think of something better to do than make up a spacer and redrill all those holes.

So all you do is either switch axle shafts so you have the lug pattern you want. Or you Run the ford lug pattern. As I said to several people in Pm's my way would work but it is different.

So, the way that you would choose to do it requires swapping out axle shafts, or changing the front axle to Ford pattern? You don't consider that a waste of time and money? That is honestly the way you would do it yourself? I doubt it.

I have about 150.00 bucks into it. That is paying for rotors, calipers and pads. I need to get lines and misc things.
