    Will a 2500 front diff. setup fit into a 1500 truck? I have a 92 fullsize blazer and I am thinking of swapping in a 4.10 front setup and 14 bolt in the rear. Thanks for any info you guys can supply. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    A solid axle should swap , I believe. Probably would have to check on the braking diffences though if the sizes are different and address them, maybe with a different proportioning valve or booster.

    If the 2500 is 6 lug then it will fit. If it's 8 lug, it won't, different mounting points. The 6 lug 2500 are just heavy half tons, can't really be called a 3/4 ton IMO. The rear should go in no prob, joint may be the only difference.

    I know I can get the rear to work, but was wondering about the 2500 carrier fitting in the front.
