    This is your THIRD thread on this today. Maybe just accept the good answers posted in your other threads.

    "Way easier and cheaper to have the wheels re-drilled for a 6lug."

    "you can probably get some sort of adapter/wheel spacer that will convert from a 6lug pattern to a 5 lug pattern."

    "Bore size, possible need for center hub ring-adapters would require further investigation, before considering the below spacer/adapter find:
    http://www.amazon.com/Wheel-Adapter-Lug-5-5-4-5/dp/B008L4NAFE/"

    Those were some pretty good answers I think. And if they aren't the desired answers, you can always BUMP a thread, which sends it to the top for more people to read and answer your question. Also, my bad, this isn't your third thread on this, but it is your second.

    I'm not trying to use wheel spacers. I was thinking I could take the rear axles and and front spindles and rotors off of a 5lug truck and switch it all out. I'm just trying to find out if that's possible before I try to do it.

    after having just taken apart my front suspension, it looks like you can just get the brake rotors and lugs from a 5 lug donor. As for the rear, I don't know what it looks like but doing a 4 lug to 5 lug conversion on a 240sx you might be able to get the rear hubs and brakes off of the same donor. I don't know if that helps.
