Question Need to change bolt pattern

Hey guys, I'm currently working on an old 79 CC shortbox, and I salvaged a disc rear end out of an old lincoln. I want to get the 5x5 axles, and rotors redrilled to the 5x5.5. Where can I get this done in Edmonton? I don't necessarily need a name of a place, just an idea where to start calling.

Thanks.

I wouldn't use that lincoln rear if possible, they use an odd ball ring gear (its like 9.75, plus its only 28spline). The disc brake setup almost entirely bolts on to a truck axle (i'm am doing a rear disc conversion on my 82 flareside, well eventially, as i have all the parts), then use a rotor off the front of a 87-96 4wd as you only have to space out the caliper bracket with a washer or 2.

Well, the reason I'm doing this is almost out of necessity. the wheels I got for the truck(20" wheels, yum, yum), require at least 1.5" of spacers with my current rear end, per side. The disc rear end is 2.25" wider than my current 9", so it fits better. Also, I have multiple center sections for a 9", will they not fit into the hole in the axle housing, as all 9" rears are created equal? I am gonna run out to the garage, and test fit one of them as soon as I'm done typing..LOL. thanks for the added info mustange70!!

Ahh alright, i though you were going to use the lincoln third (i recomend you don't for the reasons i said above), i haven't actually checked myself personally but i believe that they are the same as far as interchangability among third members is concerned.
