Disk swap question , again

I have done much searching for information on this topic, and all I can find for a drum to disk swap is on 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern, but now that i have swapped my axles i need to do the swap on a 6 bolt pattern. Is there a write up that i'm missing somewhere? I know the topic has been brought up but I havent found any answers. If anyone could help me out even with a list of needed parts it would be very helpful.

We'll need some specifics on what axle you're wanting to put disks on now. If it's a standard open knuckle 6 luck D44 then disks are super easy. You can get the parts either from a junkyard or likely someone here in the for sale section. You'll need:

outer shafts
splash shield/caliper bracket

Check out this page:

Page 38 has an exploded diagram of the D44 stock disk brakes.
