    1991 K5 swapping in 3/4 ton axles. I've got ABS on the rear now....Do I just unhook it or do I need to do somthing different?

    Why not just leave it? I've just put a 12blt in the back of mine and am leaving it connected up. They lock the rears so easily I like the rear wheel anti lock.

    Well i'm not really sure what it is that make it abs? Is it just a computer thats controling it? I'm putting a 14 bolt in the rear. Also will all the brake fittings and e-brake cable be a direct swap?

    The ABS picks up it's signal from the trans. The abs processor is next to your brake servo unit. As for the brakes, not sure. the 10 and 12 blt are all the same but i'm pretty sure the 14blt is different. I'm sure someone who has done it will chime in.
