    it is the D60 that causes the problems with 15" rims, you have to shave the calipers to fit the rim with out hitting, that is what I am dealing with right now...to grind or not to grind that is the question.

    15's fit the Full Floating 14 bolt no problem at all. The Semi floating 14 may need some light grinding depending on the drums. My buddy originally swapped an SF 14 under his Blazer, the fins on the drum needed to be ground down a little to get the rims to seat properly.

    Not all k20's are full floating, if it has hubs then yes, it is full floating.
