    68-87 (thru 91) R/V Series Chevy/GMC 3/4 ton Trucks and Suburbans = direct bolt up to a blazer/pickup
    Also came in 1 tons, Vans, and Cab and Chassis trucks for those years thru current model year, but those will require movement of spring pads and shock mounts, also, width will vary

    You should be alright if the rear axle has not been changed out . The semi-floater did not exist in 1979 . They came in around 1982 or so .

    Sounds like you have automatic hubs, when they start engaging by themselves, its time to pull them out in favor of manual hubs... do a search if you have questions about that, its a brand war i dont want to restart (Warn vs. Milemarker vs. Superwinch vs. Spicer vs. 6 other companies...)

    Also, you need to check your wheel bearings, its possible that one has locked up or spun, both of which are VERY BAD, so check it out before driving vehicle if possible
