Post 67 C10 SWB 5 lug/bolt conversion

I have searched the board and found many unanswered threads.

I have a 67 2wd SWB C10 pickup and want to swap the 6 bolt setup for a 5 bolt so I can run some 15x8 Chevy Rallys I have and improve my wheel selection down the road.

What is required to do this? Swapping parts from a 71-72 1/2 ton truck or buy a kit?

Thanks,
Joe

I think easiest is to find a 71-72 truck, and swap spindle outward including out tie rod, and for rear, just swap entire rear end.
I got my front end from a 1975 truck, and used a ford 9inch rear from a lincoln (rear disc with 5 on 5 lug pattern).
I also added a one ton sway bar from a 1976 truck, and used a 6inch/4inch drop kit from Early Classic that included a new adjustable panhard bar and mounts. So there are several things you can do. Cheapest is to find the parts from a junkyard truck.

Thanks John.

That seems like the best/cheapest way to convert to 5 lug in general.

What about being able to run the passenger car Chevy Rallys that I have? I'd rather buy the right size parts then do the swap and install an adapter kit.

Not sure if there is any way to use those, but you can buy Corvette ralleys that fit trucks. I can't remember who sells them, but they are on the internet somewhere.

I have seen those wheels.
Trouble is, I have a mint set I was hoping to use on the truck.

Measure the pattern on the wheels you have. There are two different patterns for cars. 5 on 5 and 5 on 4.75

Thanks.
