    I need to replace the rear dif unit in my 85 k10 4x4 and have a line on a 2x4 and need to know if they are the same unit and only concern should be the axle spline count

    Thanks mark

    2x4 is a 5 lug 4x4 is a 6lug but you can take the axle's out of the 4x4 and put them in a 2x4 rear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yep just swap shafts and drums, ytou can also go with 63-72 2wd rear on 73-up 4x4 if you relocate one shock mount
