    I got a 14 bolt FF rear rear axle with 4:10 gears and a dana 44 left hand drive flat knuckled 8 lug 4.10 gears line up through a guy here in utah that will sell me both axles for $200 buck will the front dana 44 axle swap straight into my blazer? I am in it for the rear axle but if I can get the front axle out of the deal with matching gears that swaps straight in I figure ROCK ON, Thanks for any help.

    Easy as pie:) http://coloradok5.com/axleswap.shtml
    The only thing that might pose a problem is the rear driveshaft will need a conversion U joint and the e brake cables might not match with the 14ff....

    instead of having the same sizes on all the caps, it has two different sizes. one set fits the (1350 i assume) yoke of the 14 bolt, while the other fits the (1310 i assume again) yoke on the end of your driveshaft.

    Correct, now if you have an SM465 and an 80's K5 you might be lucky and already have 1350 u joints in your rear driveshaft like I did....

    Do you mean the differential is on the left side or driver's side of the truck? :confused: If so this won't be a direct swap on a '73 to '91 blazer. You need a passenger side differential Dana 44. :D

    he may even luck out on the u-joint issue if he's got a 700r.they use a 1350 at the pinion end and bolted up just fine when i swapped from 10b f/r to d44f/14bff.doing a comparison at the parts store confirmed this.
