    Man i have been reading and reading!! If i had done this much studying in school i'd be a genius!!

    Just picked up a 14FF for free today. Problem is i have no idea what it came from. Any easy ways to identify? WMS to WMS?

    If it's a DRW do i need to swap it to a SRW? Any difference?

    Lastly does anyone have a list of D60 WMS to WMS? Need to know what will be closest in width .

    Thanks in advance.

    Measure the spacing between the centers on the spring perches. 42.5" is a 3/4 ton axle and 40.5" is a 1 ton axle. Also the van rear axles are the same width as a front D60. If the housing has ribs on the center section then it is 1988 or newer.

    I.d.

    A GM dealer can identify the axle's ratio and year ,by the 3 letter code stamped into one axle tube near the carrier..supposedly on the right(passenger) side tube,but I have found the codes just about any place on either tubes before...also,the date of manufacture and ratio codes are stamped into the outside of the ring gear..

    Not sure about the answers to your other questions,I'll leave that for those who do know...:crazy:
