68 Four lug to Five lug help!

I have a 68 Falcon and I'm wanttin to change the Four lugs over to Five lugs. Can I just change the Axel shafts or do I have to get I new axel? and what do I have to do to the front hubs? Thanks for your time and help.

you can get 4 too 5 lug adapter plates but they add some width to the axle
i would try to find the 5 lug axle shafts and hubs first
you should be able to find them online

or check with a machine shop and have them drill the new pattern into the drums/ axles and front hubs then press/pull in new studs...... ( new pattern goes between the old one )
