    I just ordered my 14 Bolt FF from Brians 60s....It may be a long time until I can install it but at least I have ordered it. I understand this is a direct bolt on.....BUT....do I need to do anything to the driveshaft? Or do I only need a special UJoint

    I am also going to install a 4" lift at the same time, RoughCountry. When I do all this, is there anything else that is a "must do" that will save me time and keep me from doing things twice. Thanks....any and all suggestions will the very Welcome.

    I only needed the hybred u joint the Napa # is posted quite a bit on here. Everything was bolt in. On the older axles (79? back) the parking brake cables are different.

    Also if it is a 1 ton axle you will need to relocate the spring perchs and shock mounts to put it under a K5.

    I thought I mentioned you would need to move the spring perches in my emails to you. If I did not, I appologize. the other thing you will need is a conversion u-joint, and ubolts with u bolt plates. everything else is minimal. I will let you know when I recieve your money. thanks, Brian

    I thought only the 1-ton duallys needed relocation while the 1-ton SRW were a bolt on
