    I just found out my new 14 bolt is out of a 1 ton. The spring perches are closer together and shockmounts are backward. Will the gears and carrier out of a 1 ton 14 bolt fit in a 3/4 ton 14 bolt. I don't want to use the 3/4 ton gears because the front axle maches the 1 ton gears. Will the gears need to be aligned, or would it be easier to cut the perches and shockmounts off and reweld them on? Any help would be appreciated.

    ALL PARTS ARE THE SAME!!! The only differences are the spring perches, shock mounts, and brake drum sizes. You can relocate the perches and mounts easily.
