    I am going to do an axle swap on my 87K5, to put in a 14ff in the rear, and a new front to match. I only have one question though, what type of jacks do you use, and where do you put them to keep the truck up while doing this? I dont have a hi-lift, what else works? Thanks.

    um, floor jacks. i have one you can use. or i can help you do the swap if you like, i'm just in winston. i haev some decent sized jackstands too. let me know if you want to borrow the jack (if you get the same one it'll run you $120) or you want help. if so i can get to greensboro pretty much anytime.
