Is it true that the SS454 rear end was a 5 lug SF 14 bolt? Or was it just a plain jane 10 bolt?
5 lug 14 bolt semi floater
Ok so Your right after a further search. Next question! Can a six or eight lug SF 14 bolts have their axels swaped out for five lug units?
Your guess is as good as mine on that. If you have one or have access to one, I'd sell it to some lowered truck guy. Someone with a hot 350 or something out there has to want one.
I would like to have one or build one for My 96 C1500 that I am really thinking or doing a pre-runner lift on. Would be a bolt in and would hold up just fine to 31-32's with a locking diff. Time for more reserch!
I just saw one the other day and Im almost postive it was 6lug
They were 5 lug. The new SS trucks (with the 6.0) are 6 lug.
I suspect you can swap the 5-lug 14SF axles into the C2500 6-lug housing. You might be screwed for brakes though. 8-lug housing is a different width again AFAIK.
The better way to go is 6-lug. The 5 and 6-lug 2wd rotors can be swapped with no other changes.
Wasn't the 6 lug rotors only offerd on the K1500/K2500 models? All I have ever seen 8 lug rotors on were C2500 and C3500 models as far as 2 wheel drive goes. BTW I am refering to 88-98 years.
I'm talking about 88-98 years also. Light-duty C2500 is 6-lug. The 5 and 6-lug rotors are directly interchangable.
Well that would rule seeing as I already have a 6 lug SF 14 bolt
