    I just put a 94 14 bolt in a 99 tahoe.

    I think any 14 bolt from 92 to 2000 (same body style) will work.

    I havent compared the older 14 bolt to the newer one.

    With the 8-lug SRW trucks, there's only one track width. The 6-lug have a (narrow) 2wd and a (wide) 4wd.

    Plan on running mixed wheels since the 8-lug conversion up front requires the entire front suspension - if it will even bolt to the frame /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Best "clean" upgrade is a 14-bolt Semi-float from a K1500 (w/F44 package) or 6-lug K2500. Everything is a bolt-in, except you'll need to fab brackets to keep your rear swaybar.

    Why not convert the 14bff to 6 lug? This is a pretty easy mod.

    [/ QUOTE ] Unless your talking about just using some spacer/adapters, it is a very hard job that should be done by an axle shop.
