    If the shock mount is in the right spot , yes. The tubes are bigger on the axle, but won't lift it enough to make a difference /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    If the 14 bolt is from a 4x4 then yes. If it is from a 2wd then they may not. I put one from a 2wd into a 4wd once and with the stock shocks it worked fine, but when we put the lift on the shock body of the lifted shock was larger in diameter than the stock one and it would not fit into the bracket. The brackets were welded to the housing at a lower spot on the housing. You could always relocate the shock mounts.

    Same problem with 2wd 12 bolt, shock won't fit . If you cut and rotate the mount it will fit. I run my drivers side shock upside down for now. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    My driver side shock mount would not bolt up when I installed my 14Bff because my blocks and shims angled the pinion up just enough to pull the mount too far forward.

    i just torched the mount off and rewelded it rotating it back further.

    (before I moved the mount)
