I'm in the same situation.. I have access to nice 6-lug differentials with 3.73 gears, but all my vans are 5-lug. I have NO desire to switch to 6-lug (requiring new wheels & tires) or run mixed configurations..

What would be nice would be if I could switch the rear, then swap back in the 5-lug axles into the 6 lug differential. Problem would be simply solved.

You could get new 5 lug axle shafts made to the 6 lug length, but it does not make sense to degrade back to drum brakes.
It makes a lot of sense if you consider the reasons I already gave.
