    i'm working on swapping my 10 bolt axles to the equipment and i have picked up a d60 already now i just need to figure out what is the best 14bff for my needs and i could use everyone's input of what would be best. i'm leaning towards pulling one off of a van because i want the rear wheel width to be the same a the front width. relocating spring perches and shock mounts is not an issue because i make a living as a welder and work at a fully equipped fab shop. so please vote and feal free to state your opinions and facts on 14bff's.

    Another option is finding a nice cheap 14blt and getting the hubs later. I dont know if they have disk brake kits for 14blts that have van hubs either.

    what ratio you are looking to run could come into play here. Look for a K20 with a 6 cylinder. that should have 4.56 gears in it.

    Also depends on if you have the Chevy or Dodge D60, the Dodge 60 is not as wide as the Chevy is.
