Default dana 44 front hub swap

so ive been kinda looking around at front d44s for sale and i keep finding alot of 6 lug wich wont match my new rear 5 lug axel.

being as my new rear axel is not shal we say popular, the aftermarket is a bit lacking on replacement 6 lug hardend shafts. or six lug period for that matter.

so that means i have to stick with the five lug

so heres my question from what i understand i could change out the six lug hub and rottors on a front d44 and have a five lug corect?
something like this is what i would need right? plus new rotors

First SEARCH!

Second you will need small chevy spindles and then you can run Ford 5 lug hubs and rotors.

OR change everything from the knuckles out to Ford stuff.

What rear are you running? Never mind i read your other thread. Call moser and they will send you what ever kind of shafts you want. All they need is some measurements. And they shafts are good.
