    I now have a 12bolt rr and 10bolt fr. I wanted to get the new Spacers Steve Fox added to his K5. Eventually I want to upgrade axels. D60 front 14 rear. My question is. Is the width on a corp14 the same as a 12bolt? I don't want to waste 150.00 is the 14bolt is as wide as the front axel.

    According to some - It's not the length of your wand, its the magic in it!

    Sorry I couldn't resist! :)

    Corp 10 and 12 bolt are 3" narrower than the front axle.
    Corp 14-bolt full floater is 2" narrower than the front axle.
    Don't know about the 14 bolt semi floater.

    Hey Emmett 101,
    You wrote "It's not the length of the wand, its the magic in it". Or how about It's not the size of the wave, its the motion of the ocean. All of which can be chalked up to short mans complex or the Napolean complex lol :)
    Anyways, I guess its going to be expensive either way. Going from a 12bolt to a 14bolt and 10bolt to D60. I assume I will also need new rims due to lug nut pattern change.
    Damn this k5 is starting to make my arse real sore
    Peace
    James

    LOL, ya I would probably wait and once you get your final drivetrain under it then get the spacers, or find someone on here to buy the 10/12 bolt spacers when you are done with them and that will help out a little.
