1 ton in a K5

I was wondering what changes need to be made to get my new (86?) 1 Ton 14 bolt [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img] in my 1988 K5. It has a 350/th700r4/np208 and came with a [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]10 bolt. Thanks for any help.

Re: 1 ton in a K5

All you should have to do is relocate the spring perches, and get a conversion U joint to fit your stock shaft and the 14's 1350 yoke.

If the 14bFF came out of a 3/4 ton, then you should not even have to move the spring perches.

The 1 ton had the very large drums (13"), and the 3/4 have a smaller drum.

Then all you'll need to do is find a D60 for the front so you'll have a true 1 ton. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] I hope to get my D60/14bFF in pretty soon... detroit lockers at both ends... woo hoo. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

The one ton rears also have the shock mounts on the wrong sides, so you will have to move them also.
