Any good machine shop should be able to remove the current studs and redrill for the six bolt you want.

...and cheap. I sent my rear axles to Moser Engineering, and even with shipping, I didn't pay over $75 for the fill and drill.

Also most of the 70s-80s aisian pickups use the same 6 bolt design so you might be able to make some of them fit.

didn't the GM 1/2 ton trucks about 1975 have 6 lug wheels. A front rotor off one of them just might work on your spindle. I don't know for sure but it might just fit right on there.

No, 2WD GM 1/2 ton pickups had 5 lug wheels. 4WD have 6 lugs.
