    Is $345 a good price for a softlocker? Any disadvantages to the softlocker versus a regular detroit locker for the 14 FF?

    1986 GMC Jimmy 6" springs 3" body, 38/15.5/15 Swampers, 14-bolt FF rear, Dana 60 front, 1991 front-end.

    You can find Detroits for 14 bolts for about $330. Its only $15 but it money you can use somewhere else. Just search around the net.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.
