'96 5 bolt spindle question

Hello everyone,

I'm in the process of a sterling swap in the rear and I'll be leaving the TTB in the front for now.

I've got a 4wabs '96 with the 5 bolt spindles. I understand the process by using chevy parts with 6 bolt spindles and am looking for those parts.

I do have a '76 or '77 F150 D44 that has been converted to 8 lug already. It's using Ford parts and has 5 bolt spindles. Are the 5 bolt spindles on the early D44's the same bolt circle on the 5 bolt spindle TTB D44s?

I've been searching for days to figure out if they are the same or not. I'm currently 2500 miles away from my truck and axle, so I cant measure them.

I dont want to buy earlier TTB knuckles and a 8 lug 10 bolt if I dont need to.

Thanks for your time guys.

no there not. TTB on left, Solid on right


really if you wanted you could probably reuse your knuckles and jsut drill new holes for the chevy spindles and use regualr bolts instead of studs. it would probably be alot easier to cut the caliper ears off also. not sure why i didint think of that when i first did it. but i already had the 6stud knuckles so it iddnt bother me anyways

Thank you for the side by side. I will just keep the 96ttb stuff together. I understand that it is getting pretty rare. Someone will need it.

the knuckles arent worth much. they were sued 94-96 and dont really break where one would need them. unless you wanted a spare. the spindleo n the other hand is worth money. they dotn sell them anymore and getting harder to find if they are use the 2-piece hub seal.

I have a '96 with the 5 bolt spindle/knuckles. I also have a set of earlier 6 bolt knuckles (don't have the spindles anymore I don't think). They were on a set of beams I pulled at the JY. I'm in the process of cutting and turning my original beams and am using the 6 bolt knuckles to do the initial camber adjustment. Once the beams are done I will have no more use for those knuckles. If you are interested in them, PM me and we can discuss it off the board. It will probably be at least a couple weeks until I'm done but once I am I will be getting rid of my extra stuff. I don't know if that helps or not.
