    Alright, after pulling my eyebrows out and searching I decided to ask this stupid question. I found a 14bff under a G30 van, it is complete. Is it worth 150$? I have to pull it for that price, the owner said he would cut it out for 50$ more. I know I have to change the spring perches and shock mounts but, This is the stuff that kills me I find this junk and then I dont know if its worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad:

    I would buy it if its in good shape.
    It is wider than a truck 14 bolt.
    It may have really high gears in it.
    Make sure its a full floater & not a semi floater

    Good luck

    well if it has the gears you want and if the carrier is open then it might be worth it. I know the van's 14ff go for alittle more than the standard width 14ff. if it dosen't have the gears are open carrier that you want I would pass on it and keep looking.

    Dont but it, I may know where one is that you couldn buy tommarow cheaper, it wouldnt be locked and mayby 4.10's at best. But it should be under a hundred.

    I'd never pay $150USD for a 14bolt. Around here one can be had for $50-$100CAD out of a truck.


    $50 to torch it out is obscene. That alone should be an indication of highway robbery. With an oxy/ace torch you can have a rear diff out in about 90 seconds.

    If it were me I'd send a PM to this guy...besides for $50 he could probably lay a charge on the van and turn it into confetti without touching the axle itself:D

    I have sold 14bolts for 150$ but they were delivered to the guys truck bed by me. I would say 150$ is top of the line for a drum braked, stock geared 14bolt. I don't think I would pay that because they are easily had for less with some leg work but if your time is worth more than your money than maybe it is worth it to you.

    I sell them for 150-200 all day long. It's the going price around here.

    I've paid as much as $120 CDN for one in the correct ratio, correct perches, and shot brakes.

    I've traded one (4.10, 1-ton, good brakes) for a 3/4-ton 10-bolt w/4.10 & raised steering arm.

    Some of the 'low-brow' wrecking yards around here have falt-rate prices for axles.... usually ~$100-200.
