I think Synbiotic is doing a 5-lug conversion. You could contact him.

I have done it, I am running Toyota hubs and rotors up front with Hardbody drop spindles, they were machined to fit the Hardbody spindle and wheel bearing. I am also running a 90 Toyota rearend. I had to have my driveshaft extended, which may or may not be necessary in your application, I did this to my 94 Pathfinder. Also re-drilled the rear driveshaft flange to mount to the Toyota rearend. I also added a rear slip yoke to the second driveshaft which is very helpful with an adjustable suspension. Hope that helps.

Just curious, Ven: Why do this? A 6-lug setup is stronger than a 5-lug setup.

I've never understood all the mods. Why not keep it stock and well maintained? Or just get another vehicle?

Wheel selection in my case. I went with a fuel injected v8 chevy/overdrive auto combo in my case, and needed to upgrade the rear to a stronger one. Cheaper to do an 8.8 swap in the rear and mod the toyota rotors. As far as stock goes, my grandfather bought my truck new, a 4 cylinder/auto combo. It never got more than 15 miles per gallon from new. When the trans died and I had to pull the engine to get the trans out, I went with the v8. I get slightly better gas mileage, with the bonus of more than double the horsepower...

Yes I basically did mine for wheel selection as well. Especially on bagged trucks there is alot more available in 5 lug with the correct offset to tuck. Also the Toyota rearends are a little narrower than the Nissan so that helped as well.
