    Are there any Ford rear axles that will just bolt in to my k5? Same spring perche width adn all I mean. Looking to cut costs and the 14 bolt I found is 1 ton so cutting costs there might cost more in teh end.

    Why would you want to run a F*rd axle? If you aleardy have the 14 bolt, just knock off the spring perarchs and move them. Can get much cheaper, if you know someone with a welder it shouldn't cost you anything. Maybe a few beers. You can find anything cheaper. To go and find a completly new axle would be way to much work and money. Use the 14 bolt. Move the perches; weld them on. Done
