    Sounds like some nice upgrades to the engine. The Dana 44 would be the stock axle offered in this vehicle. My 69 K20 has a closed knuckle front axle. I would imagine yours is also closed knuckle. This knuckle is strong but doesn't give a very good turning radius. It will have drum brakes and would be easier to just get a good used axle with disk brakes if you want to ever get away from the drum brakes up front.

    Any pics of the K5?

    Some people will say the gear drive is a negative, others will tell you different. Any idea of the specifications for the cam?
