My trucks stock pattern is 5on 4.75. I'm running an 8.8 rear with 5on 4.5 and adapters. I am currently in the process of rebuilding the entire front end and to d44 hubs with 6 on 5.5. So instead of buying a 10 bolt and swapping in a smaller axle for less strength I am considering getting a spare pair of axles I have laying around redrilled to the 6 lug pattern as a temporary fix until I can afford to change it out for a fabricated 9". So my questions are
1: should I even consider doing this in the first place
2: who knows of any good shops in LA/ San bernadino/oc that can do it for a reasonable price?
