    I've got to get rid of the 8 bolt wheels on my 52 Chevy 3600 PU. What backing plates and drums will fit these spindles that has 5 bolt wheel pattern? Just replaced king pins, want to use this axle.

    with the right bearings, car drums from the same year (approx) fit on the truck axle I have (3100 I believe), not 100% on the 3600, but I bet if you get all the parts from 52-59 car you can make it work.

    3/4 ton stuff is all different, get a half ton truck (or axles/brakes/spindles etc) if you want to get away from 8 lug stuff.
