6 x 5.5 small bearing hub

Does anyone know the combination I would go about using if I was trying to get my small bearing spindle set up to 6 x 5.5 lugs? I have found plenty of threads on how to go to 5 on 5.5 but not the other way around. I would think it would be safe to assume I could go the other way just as easy.
Any ideas?

Chev. hubs and rotors,6 on 5/5 will fit on the small bearing spindle.Most early chev. axles came with the small bearing spindle and 6 on 5/5 on the outter knuckle.

Ya, the early Chey 1/2 tons... that had small bearing spindles, pre '7/'76 or so.

Or full-sized-Jeep. Pre 1980 or so. grab the hub and rotor from any of those applications and you should be good to go. Really though, if your junk-yard shopping, might as well grab knuckles out and run the whole combo. Might not cost you any more in parts, then your SURE to have parts the work together. You could also just grab the hub/rotor and spindle off a post '76 chevy D44 or 10-bolt with the 'big' spindle and just run them. The only difference is the spindle and the 'big' spindle is a dime-a-dozen.
