    I used a 77 14 bolt swap out of a suburban. Main problem I had was that my drivers side shock would not mount up to the 14 bolt bracket. I was going to cut the bracket and reweld it thanks ( aka Shawn Supersize75k5). I ended up fliping my shocks and had to remove the metal insert on the shock where the shock mounts up top. It works pretty good :D I will post some pics later. Also had issues with brake lines I had to use the set off of the 14sf cuz the 77 line was not long enough to mount to the top mount brake line. I still have address ebrake lines those are differnt to :rolleyes: After swapping in the 14 ff by myself the ebrake can wait :doah:

    there's always something that's causes a setback. gotta expect that when modifying anything.
