corp 14 axle swap ? yes i searched

I have a 84 k1500 with 10 bolts and want to bolt in a d44 and corp 14. My truck has a 4" lift, blocks in the back. I know i need to get the crossover u joint for the rear drive shaft. I also need to get new u bolts for the 14. I have the spring plates for the 14 already. My first question is what size ubolts do i need and were can i get them? Second question is will the back of the truck sit higher with the corp 14 bolted it?

Re: corp 14 axle swap ? yes i searched

I'll try to help as best I can...

On a 10 bolt equiped BLAZER (your truck may or may not use the same, I don't know for sure) the driveshaft uses a 1310, where as a 14 bolt uses a 1350 series U joint. If you want to give it a try, go to the parts store and ask for a U joint that is a 1310 on one side and a 1350 on the other and see if it works.

You might gain some lift from the 14 bolt, but it would likely be so small that I doubt you would notice it... then again, there may be none at all. However, the 14 bolt will have less clearance underneath than you old 10 bolt did. From the diff to the ground I mean.

I just saw this after answering another post.... I scanned through it, and it basically said what I told you about the U joints. I thought maybe it would have the actual number but it didn't. Anyway, maybe it will come in handy for your swap.

Glad you found what you needed, sorry about that... I read U bolt, but my brain read U joint.. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
