Soring Perch Distance?

OK well dont really have time to swap motors and such so I need to know now if there is a difference in the distance between the spring pads from the center on a 1 ton 14 bolt and 3/4 ton 14 bolt?

Looking to swap a pair of 1984 1 ton truck axles into a 1979 3/4 ton suburban. Then Im gonna chop up the Sub so it looks like a crew cab pickup. Maybe fool with a blazer fiberglass top but thats just a dream for now.

Any info on the axle swap would be great time to search now.

The front axle will bolt in, but the rear will have to the perchs cut off, as the 1 tons used a different width. The 1 tons uses 40 1/2", and I think the 1/2 and 3/4 use a 43 1/2". The shock mounts might need to be changed too.
