    Can you guys please confirm this info is correct for a 12 bolt to 14FF conversion.(14FF is a 3/4 ton version)

    1. Brake Lines- They should bolt right up
    2. Hybrid U-joint- Napa #348
    3. U-bolts- I have the 5 1/2" blocks from superlift in the rear. Will I be able to purchase a 3/4 ton 6" u-bolt kit from superlift?
    4.Wheels- I want 15" 8 lug 15x12's. I'm either getting mine from Bart or Wheel Vintiques. I'm gonna get 3.5"- 4" Backspacing.-Also, Will my 39.5-15-15 TSL Super swampers fit on 15x12" wheels?

    I did my searching but I still had a few questions. Thanks for any input. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    #3. Just call Superlift and tell them you need the part # for a '78 (you can use any year of course) 3/4 ton with 5.5" blocks. Thats what I did when I got my u-bolt ki from Superlift. Althouhg mine was for 4" blocks. If I remember correctly, It was $44.95 for the kit. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Thanks guys /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. I just wanted to make sure this was correct before I bought everything. I hope those lines aren't frozen(fingers crossed).

    I added some 4" stainless braided brake lines. you can connect up your hard lines, but they will be moving, and they weren't designed to move. I believe it's a little safer.
