Anybody know where I can find 8 bolt front hubs?

Its for my '55 F350. I'm replacing the rear axle with a Dana 70 and would like to keep the bolt pattern the same. I've heard that some of the 250's had 8 bolt wheel patterns, and was hoping to locate some hubs that I could put on the front of my truck.

I don't know for sure what spindles you have or if you have converted them to disk brakes but almost every junkyard in the state should have F250s around, and yes they would be 8 bolt hubs or a better bet would be to look for an E350 cube van like the D70 most likely came out of.

I've got a front stub that has the hubs on it. I would have to go look to be absolutely certain, but I do believe I have them. All 250's have 8 bolts at least after the 60's. Trick is that you have a straight axle, and these are twin I beam.. I know that a 64 would have a straight axle with the 8 bolt hubs.

Do you already have the Dana 70? I have one as well as the fronts, but again.... twin I-beam from an F350.
