Help to Id Spindle & Hub

Can you ID this hub ? It was under a 56 GMC PICKUP entire axle was removed The Axle was bent, after having a machine shop replace the kingpins and bushings in a replacement axle I found (from a 55 Chevy 1/2 ton) threw it under the truck connected the drag an steering arms that were on it. Thinking to have it aligned later. 6 years
later now and decided to finish it, I discover the spindles, hubs, and steering will not work on my 56. Apparently they bored the spindles to fit
the 56 axle, didn't tell me that? bump stop does not line up nor the steering links? I wish I had not junked the bent axle, I need to find out what it came off of? It's looking like it may be easier to replace what ever axle it was rather than try to find good 49-54 Chevy hubs 5 X 4 3/4 pattern. If and when you reply I can send pictures to help! Would a great help Thanks

Noticed 5 lug hubs ,came with 6 ,gm used a 6 lug hub from a p/u on the 57 black widow Factory built nascar racer .so i would think they are interchangeable ,have not tried this swap but i think i would check this first ,might be what you need. i recentky sold a 53 gmc pu i bougnt for parts Lots of parts were different would not fit my chevys even though they look similar.

The hubs are 61 to 68 full size Chevy car. It looks like the spindles were machined to use the car hubs.
