    Have a local guy that has two SF 14 bolts.......one 6 lug and one 8 lug (didn't know then made 8 lug SF, but that's beside my point [​IMG]. I am looking into the 6 lug, wanting to keep my Centerlines. I will know for sure on Sunday, but if it has 3.73 gears (like my existing 12 bolt does) and a "factory posi" (the dreaded GovLoc?) is it worth $200. Future plan would be 4.56 gears with a Detroit. I am thinking it is NOT, as it does not have brakes or backing plates. If I convert it to TSM rear disks, don't I still need the backing plates or not?

    Anyway, your esteemed opinions are requested. Seems I have heard of getting these for about $150 with brakes, would have liked it to be a bolt in affair.

    With no brakes offer him $50-$75 for it. Don't know about the TSM kit. Messure the sring plates to make sure thay are the same. I was told the late model(92-98) axels are too narrow. The 8 lug 14sf is what I have in my 86 Sub. 3/4 ton.

    I have to agree with Mike, $50-$75 is probably more than fair since you'll have to buy new brakes, drums and backing plates.
    The gov-lock isn't the most desirable LSD goin' either, so basically you'd be buying a core.
    I'm pretty sure the TSM kit comes with its own backing plates, so that may be the way to go.

    The average price around here for the 8-lug SF 14 bolt is about $250, though I have found complete assemblies for $100. The 8-lug versions were very common on 3/4 ton pickups and Subs starting back in the early or mid-80's. The 6-lug versions came out with the new body style pickups in '88 and were used in some light duty 2500 (3/4 ton) series and few assorted 1500's (1/2 tons) with the trailer towing package. This also means that you will have to move the spring pads and probably the shock mounts to bolt up a factory 6-lug 14 bolt to the older style truck, and I'm not sure about the overall width. The 8-lug could be from either the newer or older style trucks. A version from the older style should pretty much be a bolt-in.

    Mine is an 8-lugger and the spring pads are the same width apart, but i never measured overall width or shock mounts.
