Default 79 Ford Dana 44 with 5x130?? Please Help

Hey everyone. I have a cj7 with a bronco dana 44 front and its got the drums so I was going to convert the drums to discs by getting a 79 F150 dana 44 front and swapping everything from the knuckles out. The problem I ran into is once I got the 79 axle home I realized it was NOT 5x5.5 bolt pattern but 5X130. The left caliper bracket has Bendix 3204157-L which from what I can find is standard 76-79 F150 but why is the bolt pattern 5x130??? this doesn't make sense to me and is there a way I can redrill to make it 5x5.5? Thanks for any help from one Very confused and upset jeep owner.

The caliper brackets bolt to the knuckle. Sandwiched between the spindle and the knuckle. The hub/rotor hat is 5x5.5

What year is your EB axle? Sure it's not a dana 30?

Those bolt holes are not where the wheels bolt on.
