    I have a 3/4T truck and I was woundering would a 1 ton dual tire axle fit on my truck with no modifcations, or would something have to be changed?

    Thanks for the help

    Nope, spring perch and shock mounts will be different.

    I think I know the answer but I will ask anyway, can the springs be modified?

    You would have to swap the spring hangers out with 1 ton ones. They are rivited on. Not too fun if you ask me. I would rather move the perches.

    I gott a '78 4.56:1 dually axle, thought it might be something I would try maybe in the future. I do not have a single rear tire 1 ton axle and I do not know anyone that does, so that why have not given that any thought.
    Will a single rear tire 1 ton axle bolt right in place? and if the ratio's do not match can the gears from the 3/4t axle be used in the 1 ton?

    Thanks for the help
