    I dont think so. Im not sure, but I dont think you can run a dually 14 rear in a K5 without some modifications other than just moving the perches. My brother had a dually 14 rear given to him when he worked at a salvage place, and when I went to look at it one day, trying to sell it to a guy with a k5, it was too small for our trucks. The measurement from the end of the axle at the inside drum, to the other inside drum was narrower than our frame width. I may be wrong, but i know for sure it was a 14ff, it was a dually rear, and there was no way it was going in a non modified k5.

    Depends on what kind of dually 14.

    The C&C ones are one-ton spacing, just with funny (inboarded) brake flanges and the dually hubs.

    The (later, i.e. 88+ IFS-style) wiiide dually 14b's are stupid wide 'cuz they're from the IFS rigs.

    I have heard rumour of a 73-87 style wide dually 14bff, in addition to the D70, but I donno.

    C&C 14bff... has the dually hubs, so the WMS is 2" in on each side, IIRC, along with the brake flanges... but the shafts aret he same and the OA width, hub-outside to hub-outside, is actually the same as an SRW 14b.
