    Yep, 2WD/4WD were the same for the most part. I think there are different shock locations though, depending on the year. That's the only diffs I know of.

    Oh, and the 70s (as far as I know) came only on duallys so they would be too wide. Just like the one I mentioned to you that the guy in LasVegas had. Not sure about 60s. Seems like I recall them being on single wheels.

    I used a 14FF from a 1980 Chevy 2WD in my 75 K5. It was a direct bolt in with no modifications.

    I had to mow off the shock mounts and sew on the ones from my 12 bolt.

    I'm running a 2wd housing out of a '75. I had a '77 4wd housing but the threads on the spindle drivers side were chewed up abit. The only difference was the shock mounts length, they hang down lower about 1 1/4". But the location is the same. Oh these were both out of a 3/4 ton. The 1 ton mounts are just the opposite on location. drivers side mount is on the front of axle, and pass side is on the rear. Just the opposite of your 10 or 12 bolt or the 3/4 ton. Hope this helps.
