    while trying to find a kit for my 87 k30 dually, i noticed all the lifts for k30's say "except dually". why is this? whats the difference?

    only thing i can think of off the top of my head might be the rear u-bolts...14 bolt and dana 70???

    any input apprecciated.

    4" tubes on th D70HD. Often the dually's have a swaybar too.

    I can't think of anything else :dunno:

    While the 70hd has bigger tubes, they both still use the square style u bolts with the threads on the bottom that capture the spring and not the axle, so I can't see that making any difference.

    i did a lift on my cab chassie with 14ff and had to cut and turn the right shock mount on the axle. with the pinion corection in the block it moved it down and to the front. the shock wouldnt line up with the upper mount.

    Hmmm... that would still be the same for a 1-ton SRW. :thinking:
