have your axles redrilled by a machine shop to 5 on 5 (they drill in between the studs)

machine shop for the rears- you can change the front with a drill press but be carefull

I bought a 1" spacer with all three bolt patterns in it for $17 from Day Motorsports. I bolted it onto the hub with the old lug nuts and used a 5/8" drill bit and drilled the new pattern using the spacer for a guide. Then I enlagred the hole with a 43/64 bit to hold the new studs. Use a drill press to get the holes straight.

Good luck,

Are you going to run a ford 5x5 axle on the rear.If so just go to the salvage yard look for a 78-83 BUICK PARK AVE with 1/2 studs and has a 12 inch rotor. The ball joints are the same as a camaro.This setup has many plus,s the bigger studs and rotors while still working on camaro lower joints.
