    yes, if it's a SRW 14b (non van width) and not a C&C SRW axle.

    Doesn't the narrow rear end decrease turning radius though? I thought GM built it in like that on purpose.

    Why waste money on something that is not broken?

    It is supposed to help with steering radius and help with tracking.

    I'm glad my D60 is wider than the stock 10b. It looks much better to have both front and rear the same/similar widths.
