Finally got the parts to do a Bronco TTB 8-lug swap. Craigslist find for $50, pretty good shape too! I only need the spindles, caliper brackets, hubs, rotors, and lockouts, everything else will be up for sale shortly.

Writeup on a TTB 8 lug swap with chevy stuff to come.

How are you going about the swap, redrilling the Ford knuckles or Chevy spindles?

neither, they're both 6 bolt, hence the weird combo

Cool deal then, I had thought all Ford D44 junk was 5 bolt.

it is, thats why i got a Chevy 10 bolt, swap out knuckle studs, and mill off the TTB caliper brackets, and then all the Chevy stuff mounts right up...Well in theory anyway, I'll let ya know how it works in reality land.
