    did the bakes on my 95 3/4 ton truck today. i had to replace a wheel stud and the one they pulled up on the computer that matched the one i had was speced for a one ton. also in my manual it says that 1/2 and 3/4 tons have the rotors that just pulls off after you pull the wheel and the caliper and the one tons are pressed on. well mine is pressed on. :dunno: my rig doesn't even have the FF 14 bolt, its just the semi so i don't know why i would have the one ton type front set up. can anyone shed some light on this?

    I think all of the 8 lug are the same. 6 lug 2500's would have the seperate rotor.

    BTW, small block 2500 and some 3500 trucks got the 8 lug semi float 14 bolt. Big blocks, diesels and most small block 3500 trucks got the full float 14 bolt. All 8 lug 2500's until about 2001 are 8600 GVW trucks regardless of engine or rear end.

    BTW, I swear that GM uses some soft ass steel on those metric studs on the 88-up trucks. I have broken at least 2 on my 97 in the last couple of years, and recently broke one on a Tahoe I am working on. Seems to be the front only.

    Yes, 8 lug 2500 and 3500 trucks have the same 9.25" diff, carrier, and half shafts (with a few changes through the years), suspension A arms (also improved around 96-97), and torsion bars (several different bars depending on GVW, and engine/drivetrain).
