HELP..confused ..tons on questions
I cant decide on what to do...But first I need to know the difference between an 8 lug 10 bolt fron vs. a 6 lug.Is the 8 lug stronger and will the gears interchange..The second would be a 6 lug 14 bolt SF from a 95 Suburban vs. an 8 lug 14 bolt SF..Is it stronger and are the brakes the same size as the newer axle?...
the 6 lug axles(3.42 fronts) are on my other 86 Sub with frame damage.Its got a 6" lift,35x15x12.5 tires that I want to use..
The 86 Suburban that Im currently using needs tires and front springs so to save money Im going to use the lift from the other truck and hopefully use the wheels/tires..
Im thinking of swapping axles but I still have to change the gear of the front..
What would be a sensible decision,spend the $$ on 8 lug wheels and tires and HOPE to sell the 15" wheels/tires with my other Sub or swap the axles and re-gear the front diff..note that the axles has to be removed from the other truck..Ive installed the motor,tranny,springs and rear end of that same truck..
