    Ok, here is my dilema. I have a 1979 GMC Seirra 25. What is it...1 ton, 3/4 ton? Also, It has 8 lug axles. The rear is full floating, and it has he bolt around the pinion only and it has small brake drums. Is there any way to identify it?? Also what front axles where available in 79? Help me, because mt dad wants to parts he truck but I wanna know what the stuff is b4 I tare it apart it also has a sm465 if that'll help.

    It is a 3/4 ton.
    The rear axle is a 14 bolt FF 10.5"
    The front axle could either be a 10 bolt or a Dana 44.

    It is most likely a D44 or 10 bolt front, with a 14 bolt FF rear. O yeah its a 3/4 ton truck.

    in 79 some trucks still had the dana 44, not all though, even though alot of sources say no 44 after 77, ive seen several 79's with dana 44 front, but '80-up should only be 10 bolt gm front
