3 bolt Vs 5 bolt interchange

This has probably been covered before but ive searched 50 times and cant find anything.
I've read with KW coilovers if you have a 3 bolt you can use 5 bolt setups but not the other way around. Do you just remove 2 of the studs of make this work?
As well is this the same for ALL brands or just KW?

Should be the same. Did you contact KW?

For TCKline, on some applications, the other two bolt holes just don't get used.

Also looking for confirmation on converting 5-bolt Top hats/camber plates to 3-bolt usage with removal of the 2 extra studs.
