2nd gen rollers on a 1st.

So heres what im trying to accomplish and i would greatly appreciate any help. I have a 1993 lightning (bone stock) with 26,000 original miles. I bought it in nov. 07 because i love the 1st gens, but i am currently deployed and my dad is helping me with this project. First i would like to convert it to all around disc brakes and i want factory 2nd gen. 18 in. wheels. What would i have to do to put a brake kit from a 2nd gen. and 2nd gen. wheels on it? do i need to knock the studs out and replace them with a different size or something of that extent? Thanx for any help.

The wheel just need to be drilled out a bit. There are guys on the NLOC who have done it at home with a hand held drill. It is not much at all. As for the brakes. All I know about is where guys have used the brakes from a Ford Explorer. Go to www.nloc.net and do a search on these subjects.

The holes are 5/8". You need to drill them out to 11/16" and use flat washer lug nuts. You can get them on ebay for around $40 shipped.
