Did they make a 6 lug Corp 14 with 3.43 Gears?

    Do a search at http://www.mypartshop.com

    Applicable years are 88-98 C/K series trucks or 96-up Savana/Express. Can be a 1500 4x4 with 14-bolt cover, 2500 2wd with 6-lug wheels (narrow track), or 2500 4x4 with 6-lug wheels (wider track).

    3.42 and 3.72 are the most common ratios.

    Spring perches do need to be changed to fit the 88-older trucks.

    The simple answer to your question is YES, and the key word to your axle search is SEMI FLOATER. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    All the 5 and 6 lugs are SF's from the factory.

    There are aftermarket kits to convert them to FF, but they are pricey.

    The 14 bolt SF is available in 5, 6 and 8 lugs. The 5 lugs is the 454SS truck rearend.

    The 6 lug shafts will swap into the older 8 lug axles, correct?

    Yes, they will, but there are 2 different lengths of the 6 lug shafts.
