Manual Hub Conversion

My truck has teh ttb dana 50 in the front end and the automatic locking hubs are starting to lock up on the highway randomly so its time to throw some warnm premiums in. I see all over the internet that if you have the automatic hubs with the 3 bolts you need a some sort of a conversion kit. My automatic hubs however are 5 bolt and i have been told i dont need the conversion kit. Im confused because i thought the warns were 6 bolt. Has anyone done this on their obs f250 with the with the twin i beam?

The "conversion kit" probably has the nut with a dowel pin, the locking washer, and locknut. This new spindle hardware replaces the automatic spindle nut and lock tang. Bolt count on hub face is irrelevant, it's just the holding the cover to the hub body inside the hub. The hub body is retained by a snap ring under the cover.
