I have the info from the Jeep god's site where he list the parts to swap a Ford hub, etc to get to 5 on 5.5 from 6 lug, but I do not see if that requires a different length outer axle shaft than the stock Waggy length. Does the Chev small spindle change that length over the Waggy spindle? I know that the WMS is slightly wider when it is all done.

I figure I will see when I put it all together, but if I order alloy axles first, then I want to get it right the first time.

Anyone know off hand?

Thanks.

Waggy stubs & Chebby stubs are the same length.

The only thing you have to worry about is the correct spindle/bearings for the hub (can't remember if its big or small bearings.)

Yeah? Cool. I figured he was pretty good with all the other details of the swap, so it seemed a bit odd to have left something like that out.

I got the bearing thing figured out. Small bearings IIRC, but I have to check the stuff I printed out when I go to NAPA, etc.

Thanks.

I converted my waggoneer to 5 on 5.5. I am running the small bearing spindles.With rotors, wheel bearings, and seals off an 89 f150. My stub shaft is the stock wagoneer one. My calipers are stock Wagoneer ones as well as the stock caliper brackets.

Edit for better clairity.

That is awesome tech right there.
Everything a waggy owner needs to know about converting to 5 lug.
