    I spotted a 14 Bolt FF under an '80 30 series Chevy van. Since its a 1Ton, will the spring perches need to be moved or will it line up properly.

    Van axle perches will have to be moved regardless of series...the axles are also a bit wider, make sure thats the look you want.

    <font color=blue>Van rears will not bolt up, only pickup rears. You will have to move the perches and shock mounts but it will be as wide as the front without spacers.</font color=blue>

    That's what I was affraid of. Just by eyeballing it, it looked different from the one I have from a K20. Oh well, I have the spacers on the way anyway. Thanks for the info guys. If anyone needs a 14 Bolt in N. Cali give me a holler. They go for about $118 complete around here.

    I live in Alameda, in the Bay Area. I don't have one for sale but I know of a junkyard that has a couple.
