    I've got a lead on a 14 bolt from a GM 3500 van. Is this the wider axel and would the perches need moving? Anything else I should be aware of?

    The ones people generally grab are the ones from G30 vans..... not sure the cutoff year-wise.

    I thought the newer 1-Ton axles had a different casting on the pumpkin (lots of casting ribs on the outside). My only concern would be that they are 100% interchangeable with the earlier stuff so you can get cheap Detroits, and disk brake kits.

    shock mounts i think for sure . perches yes 100% move . and all internals still same if its a true 14ff rear. van width is 3" wider than std pickup srw. but the k30 dulley rear from reg pickup with box and fender flares is made the widest with a hub swap if i recall correctly.

    but the van rear is hard to find so grab it if not to resell even.
