    swapping 14 bolt sf to an 88\' 1/2 ton truck

    Will this bolt right in? Or will it need a different U Joint or something?

    Its a 14b SF from an 88' 3/4 ton "light duty" silverado.


    Or just post a key word that I can use for a search if you know there are plenty of posts out there.

    looks like it will bolt right in. There weren't any posts for swapping to trucks, just blazers.

    If anyone knows off hand if the ujoints are the same, let me know.
    Thanks,

    If you currently have a 10 bolt, you will need a napa, or precision, #447 U-joint. It is half 1310 and half 1350.

    swapping trucks and blazers is the same.

    Re: swapping 14 bolt sf to an 88\' 1/2 ton truck

    just to clarify a lil .. you are swapping a 14SF from an '88 LD 3/4T into an '88 pickup? Also guessing both 88 trucks are 4x4's. If so, it ought to be an easy swap. Should just need the different u-joint (447 IIRC). If its an 88 axle going into an 87 or older truck or 91 or older blazer/burb you will need the new joint and to redo the shock and spring mounts. There will likely need to be something done with the e-brake but I am not sure what exactly. When I did mine I swapped to disc and have not done anything about the e-brake yet.
