Default Nissan 5 Lug swap take II

I have decided to look into redoing this swap by machining the hubs only. This gives the option of being able to revert back to 6 lug.

Here's the previous info and will be adding as I get stuff done.

Parts needed.

Toyota truck hubs and rotors. 89-95 is the ideal year, since they share the same size bearings as the Nissan. The 83-88 appear to be similar and have been used. I found some 88 hubs that appear to be the same as the 89 and up. The older hubs look very similar but the flat part on the hub actually dips down.

Hub comparisons.





NATIONAL FEDERAL MOGUL OIL SEALS Part # 710175. This is for the 89-94 Hubs, this is the rear seal that goes on the back of the Toyota Hubs to seal them to the Nissan spindles (larger dia than Toyota spindle).

Napa was able to cross reference the part number I provided to their part number of 20906 for the seal.

The actual seal.


Toyota hub seal.

Yesterday I mocked up a spare yota hub on my current spindles to get measurements.



Centered the bracket over the rotor



Approx 3/32" between the bracket and the spindle.

Did some more measuring and found the ideal amount to take off the hubs is actually under 3/16" Total. So I'm thinking 1/16" off the outer and 3/32" off the inner.

Nissan Hub


Toyota Hub

i would have your axles and drums redrilled so they match. i believe he's using a toyota rear.

What sucks is where I live there is a ton of machine shops, everwhere, but they only do oilfield, and the few auto machine shops won't touch em so I'm gonna have to ship them off somewhere to get it done thinking of hitting up moser see what they tell me

I'm actually doing a custom Ford 8.8 rear end on my truck.

Today I got the hubs back from getting machined (from Ratsun.net) and they look really good.

3/32" off the inner bearing seat.


1/16" off the outer bearing seat.



New bearing and races (set me back about $70).

so whats the advantage over machining the hubs, whereas i was thinking the spindles? Do you still have to machine the spindles?

Machining the hubs = easier and cheaper to do and you have the option of reverting back to 6 lub by simply changing the hubs. Spindles do not need to be modified if you machine the hubs. I think this will also center the rotor on the caliper bracket.
