No, the bolts weren't jacked up at all. the holes in the brake weren't all wallered out either.. really I could have just snugged them down and likely been fine. But since I went on the excursion to the Lexus dealer on Saturday for new bolts, I went ahead and replaced them all. Also, I found using the tire on the ground to be an excellent work surface

Speaking of just 5 bolts, it would be sweet if you could put a 100 series drive flange on an 80- that would be a nice upgrade, to what in my experience was a bit of a weak point. the bolts with the cone washers are 10mm- takes a 14mm socket to remove, so they won't strip as easy. Those pins are bigger too- I bet you could mill out an 80 hub to retro fit... I still don't like just 5 lugs, but I do like the bigger drive flange bolts, and yes there are 6 of them.

Oh, and the star washer between the big nuts is the same. Same nuts too, for that matter.

You absolutely can! The flange bolts are a bit big for the 80 hub but the drive pins are a fantastic upgrade! Replace the drive studs with ARP's and that weak link is all but eliminated.
