    FF is stronger than the SF. If you use the FF, you will never have to worry about breakage.

    Personally, I would get the 14 bolt FF, and use the 8 to 6 lug adaptors on the rear. (1) You can keep your Welds. (2) Lines rear tires up with the front ones. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
