wuz talkin to a guy today and he wants me to swap 3/4ton diffs s/f14bolt and d44, into his 1ton crew cab 14bolt d60 in trade for the axles (ff14boltand d60 4.10's) plus a bit of cash no i'm not gonna give you his number[11]

you chev guru's out there gimmie some advice on stuff like driveshaft length differences steering etc. he's got the 3/4ton diffs waiting to go in

don't ask me why he want's to ruin his truck cuz i didn't ask

i don't think it would be hard at all i'm just not a chev expert

it's light it's fast it's powerful

everything a chevy isn't

I hate to give advice on a job I would love to do. The only thing is the front shaft may be a bit short,I may have one for you if its to short. That guy is weird[2][a][a][a]

i would just change the rear gear ratio if its different and keep that 1 ton rear on it..

just do front swap.. and if u have to gear swap too..

thats all

Thats true the rear isn't worth that much they are a dime a dozen its the d60 that is worth the money.

14 bolt is a 14 bolt whether 3/4 ton or 1 ton.

For 73-87 style trucks...
3/4-tons have 42.5" spring spacing and outboard shocks.
1-tons have 40.5" spacing and inboard shocks.

For 88-98 style trucks...
3/4 and 1-tons (except C&C models) have the same spring spacing.

I disagree I just swaped a 1/2 ton 12 bolt to ff 14 bolt was the samespring width the year was 81 .

Yeah... that makes sense:)

It means your ff 14-bolt was from a 3/4-ton. 1/2 and 3/4-ton both have the 42.5" spacing. ;)

It's actually the duelly problem that determins if it's got the wider track or not. Also, the 3/4 ton have narrower brakes than the 1 tons. I beleive the 1 tons have 3" wide shoes, and cost a hell of a lot more to replace.
