what years did the 14 bolt full floater come in? what truck 3/4 ton or 1 ton?
68-87 (thru 91) R/V Series Chevy/GMC 3/4 ton Trucks and Suburbans = direct bolt up to a blazer/pickup
Also came in 1 tons, Vans, and Cab and Chassis trucks for those years thru current model year, but those will require movement of spring pads and shock mounts, also, width will vary
not all 3/4 tons have 14bff, some have 14bsf. all 3/4t burbans have 14bsf i believe
not all 1tons have 14bff, some have d70's
1973 was the first year of the 14 Bolt FF .
You could get the 14FF all the way up to like 2000-2001.
i think you still can, in addition to the new 11.5" 14b FF
ight thanks im lookin at a 79 k 20 truck im wantin both the rear 124 bolt wich im pretty sure is a 14 bolt gots 14 bolts lol with hubs stickin out in the rear and thinkin bout gettin the 400 sbc out of it too
wait.... what started in 68 then? sm465?
You should be alright if the rear axle has not been changed out . The semi-floater did not exist in 1979 . They came in around 1982 or so .
ok good to know then i need some more money cause im going after therm today my ten bolt made some really weird grinding noise left side but i dont know if it was front or rear i thought it was rear but i grabbed my front hubs and they were too hot to hold on to i think they partialy engaged they quit though think god
Sounds like you have automatic hubs, when they start engaging by themselves, its time to pull them out in favor of manual hubs... do a search if you have questions about that, its a brand war i dont want to restart (Warn vs. Milemarker vs. Superwinch vs. Spicer vs. 6 other companies...)
Also, you need to check your wheel bearings, its possible that one has locked up or spun, both of which are VERY BAD, so check it out before driving vehicle if possible
