    The main difference that I remember is that the F**d has a 5 stud knuckle, Chevy has 6. Tie rods and links are different I think. Then you just have to remember that it is F**d whenever you need a part. What do you need? I think I have extra 8 lug conversion parts in the garage. Shipping would be high though. If you were to buy calipers and/or rotors at your local parts house it would be cheaper on shipping. I would really recommend at least new calipers. I think they are like 20 bucks and I have seen the part # for rotors here. I think they are like 60 bucks.
