    pretty certain it will be as wide as a full on dually. Its not really a van more of a delivery truck/bread truck. I'm pretty certain those are damn wide.

    front axles are 3" wider, and van rears are the same as the front axles, but I'm pretty certain that cargo van is wider yet.

    the box cube vans are wayyyyyy wider than normal vans, evne spring packs are way set farther apart than normal vans too, big time!
    i can get specs from an 82 c30 cube van if you want, its 14 bolt super duper extra wide axle under it

    yea man, anything will help, cause i can get this 14 bolt for free if i want it, i dont care if i have to move the spring perches! I just want to know if it will be the same width as the front axle.

    what model of van is it from exactly, ? normal van, or cube box body converted van ? ?

    if its a normal van then i cant do any good, although right acorss the street from the 82 cube van theres a normal 79 1 ton van with 14 fF under it sitting, so...

    would be alot narrower than the cube van 14 bolt FF

    both are G30 series vans

    they are only a block away from me, and i know the owners of both vans, i have wrenched on and also driven both of them, haha

    so..

    also your pic is stil just a red X, something is not right with it, it is not showing up, what is it pic of ?

    its a 1984 model bread type step-van, it has a 350 small block with auto transmission, as far as i know it is not modified, it came just like that. Im going to go get the radiator from it in about 15 mins, and im going to measure from the backing plate to backing plate
