    Not sure on the part's store thing but the 3/4 ton rear in my 72 burb uses one ton internals.
    Makes it a PITA everytime I need something for it... :crazy:
    I either bring in a part number or let the parts guy "roll the dice" to find the right part.

    theyre the same thing, just brakes different size

    same exact thing with 14 FF axles, difference was brake size


    3/4 ton to 1 ton


    but im talking about listings at auto parts stores

    the 76 older k-30 listing they have..

    i dont know why they have it when none existed,

    i wonder..


    thanks
