    I am swaping the 10 bolt corps from my 1990 K5. A buddy wants the old ones for his Suburban(no idea why). I don't think they'll work . The Blazer is a V truck while the 'Burban is RV. Will this make a differance?

    As long as the sub' is an '91 or older, they should bolt right in. With the exception of the longer frame, body, and a few other odds and ends, the Subs and Blazers are pretty much identical.

    Yep, those parts are very easily interchangable. The major difference between the Blazer and Sub is the body tub itself and the rear springs. Rear springs on Subs are 56" long whereas the Blazers use 52" springs. Everything else is very swappable.

    I agree with 6.2 and wanted ot add that the '90 10 bolts had 30 spline axles front and rear which would add a little strength if he was swapping out older 28 spline 10 bolts.
