    Does a 14ff out of a 3/4 ton truck have the correct spring perch spacing so that it will bolt directly into a 1/2 ton truck ? If not is the 3/4 the same as a 1 ton ? Any info would be appreciated.

    3/4 ton is a direct bolt in with the possible exception of the E-brake cables, depending on which setup you get. Minor fab will swap the 1/2 ton cables over from what I hear. 1 ton has narrower spring perches that must be moved to mount under a 1/2 or 3/4 ton.
