    I have an 87 3/4 ton van that I am going to part out . . . can't get anyone to give me $600 . . . had it in the paper for 4 weeks
    so I am going to part it out and scrap the rest. I will keep the engine and turbo 400 trans but what about the rear axle?? will it bolt into a pu?? I think it is a corporate 14 bolt.
    Thanks
    Tim

    Yeah it should fit. I have a van rear in the back of the Jimmy. Only thing I had to do was relocate the spring pads. Van widths are usually 3" wider than a truck rear so you don't need spacers on the tires to correct track width.

    yep relocate spring pads and shock mounts

    is it an FF or SF ?

    most likely an SF if an 87 but could be FF if has HD springs option, etc

    Thanks for the info . . . good stuff to know.

    IT is definitely HD because it is set up to haul 12 passengers . . . looks HD.

    I don't know what FF and SF is. Can you explain and then I can check it out and see.
    As I mentioned in another post, I found out it has the G80 or posi option. I don't know gears yet.
