Cheers dude!! Doing this would be a lot cheaper than ordering a conversion hub kit from No limits Customs ( $600au for the kit is a fair price, but $900au for shipping OUCH!!!)
Now does anyone know if the Toyota hubs can be welded and redrilled to 5x120 stud pattern??

Why not have your wheels redrilled to 5x114.3? It would be alot easier, depending on wheel design. But in 240sx's we redrill out 4 lug hubs to 5 lug, so Im sure someone can make your hubs 5x120.

Is this the same for 720s? I would be using a hardbody lowering spindle, with the caliper spacers.

These are the rims in question, dont think redrilling them will look that good.

So my only option is to redrill the hubs, i just want to know what year Tacoma/Hilux hubs do i need ??

Ok, so I understand machining .250 off the spindle just fine (the diagram really helps!). But I seem to recall reading somewhere that you need to press the spindle out and machine the seat so that when it's all said and done, the spindle nut and cotter pin will go on correctly. Is this still necessary? If so, I think I understand it but one of them there diagrams would be really sweet

No you dont have to press the spindle out of the seat. A good machine shop can machine the spindle the way it comes shipped.

What if I already have the spindles? I just "tore" the front setup out of the truck to "re bag" it. I figured now would be the perfect time to do a 5 lug conversion while I have it all apart. So you're saying I can just take the whole thing to a machine shop, have them cut down that 1/4", then I slap on a 'yota hub/bearing and voila? Will I still need to shim the caliper?

Thats what I am sayin. Find a good machine shop. Dont go to Joe Blows MAchine shope or LIck My Tool and DIe Machine shop. The shop I went to charged me 110 bucks for both. They did a great job. Make sure to take the diagram I posted with you. It il hepl with trying to tell them wht you want.

it seems to me a cheaper and easier way is to get the hubs machined instead of the spindles, i haven't seen what the hubs look like but you could probably machine the edge where the bearing bit butts up against
