    I have done some searching and could'nt find my answer. I have a sf 14bolt 8-lug out of 82 c-2500 laying around. I was wondering if I could just buy some 6-lug axles for it or is there some length differences?? Any other problems with making a change like that?

    Thanks

    Pull the axleshafts out of that axle and measure it. Then call National Drivetrain. In the past they had the 6 lug axles for around $88ea... Not sure if there were any length differences throughout the years, but as long as your measurements match theirs you good.. :thumb:

    The axle tube lengths on the K and C trucks differs. I have an axle from a 2wd drive truck and it is narrower than my old 10 bolts that I took out. The axle lengths may be the same.

    Whats the WMS-WMS on that axle?

    There are apparently 3 different widths of 14SF, my 6 lugger is 68". If yours is that, then you know that there are stock axles out there that will work.

    I got my shafts from a mid 90's truck with the 6 lug 14 sf and they were a little longer than what i had, i ended up have to space out the backing plates and it made the rear axle as wide as the front axle.
