I have a 1980 GMC 3/4 ton 4WD. The rear axle is a GM Corporate 14 bolt full floating axle. This truck was originally a PG&E tow vehicle in Eureka California. I purchased this truck for two reasons. 1] I needed to clear my back yard and the cost of the truck was less than a debris box. 2] Although the truck doesn't have one straight panel and has a lot of rust. The truck had just recieved front calipers and rotors. And I knew that in the future I could use these axles. The previous owner, not PG&E said the axles were 1 ton. Of course I don't know if they are or not. I do not know what a 1 ton axle looks like. Well that time has come and I need to know if what I want to do makes any sense. I also have a '91 3/4 ton Suburban with a GM Corporate 14 bolt semi-floating axle. And I woulds like to put the GM Corp 14 bolt FF axle in my Suburban. Does this make sense? I know it has the larger ring gear and is a beefer set up and I like the look of the axle housing sticking out on the rim. Industrial. If this Full Floater is a 1 ton how can I tell? What does this Full Floater weigh? The reason I need to know is because I going to have to hand load it in my Surburban and need to know how many guys it will take. After I remove the axles, springs and transfer case I have to have it flat bedded to the wrecking yard at a cost of $275.00 Any input is greatly appreciated.
