So I am in the search of getting a 14 bff for my blazer and was wondering the diffence between the full floater and the semi floater and how to tell the which is which???

    Full floater 14 bolt axles will have a "hub" assembly that sits on the spindle at the end of the axle, with 8 lugs. The axle will bolt to this hub, at the ends of the axle, you will see the additional 8 bolts on the end. These bolts can be removed to release the axle while the vehicle remains on its wheels! Also, you will notice the hub protruding thru the rim on any 14BFF.

    14SF axles will have 6 or 8 lugs, and will NOT have the same hub that the 14FF has. It will be FLUSH with the rim, meaning nothing protruding, and there will be no additional 8 bolts to remove the axles from the housing.

    Stop me if I am getting ahead of myself... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    this is all true about the lug and hub difference but just looking at the diff cover shows it as well. The 14bsf has some what of an oval shaped cover while the full floater is much larger and triangular in apearance.
