    Well, all I can tell you based on what you have told me is: it's a strong axle that will bolt right onto your K5.

    Your going to have to provide a little more info for a ratio though. My crystal ball threw a U joint, so it's down right now. :wink1:

    it would have a 14 bolt semi float and a 10 bolt front.
    for ratio it could have anything from 3.42 to 4.10 depending on options.
    my 4.10 axles came from a 86 k20.
