GM hasn't made a solid axle 4x4 since IFS came out in 1988 (Suburbans and Blazer had solid axle until 1992). Also, those diffs were on the passenger side, most common transfercase that matches up with the late model GM transmission is drivers side drop to match the IFS...Ford solid axles are driver;s side drop, makes for an easier swap.Axles from a f350 as in Ford?
Going into a GMC?
Why not GMC 3500 axles?
Not making an issue just wondering!
Yep, literally tons of beefy D50 and D60 front axles from F250/F350s. Looking forward to using the stock Ford radius arms, looking good so far. :sombrero:That's a good question . Price. you can buy these axles dirt cheap because there are so many of these trucks with dead engines and there is no market for the diffs . They are also beefy. Payed $500 for a complete roller frame delivered to my shop.
WOULD IT EASIER TO GET A SHORTER TAIL STOCK THAN TO CUT 3" OFF?????????? OR ARE YOU TALKING ABOT CUTTING THE OUTPUT AND INPUT SHAFTS?????Thanks guys .
The tcase is a manual shift np 241 from a 90's chev pu . The adapter is from the same .
It's all bolt on but you have to cut 3 inches off the output of the tranny and 5/8 off the t case input .
Also made a new tranny mount but a guy can probably modify the stock one .
I'll have more pics up soon.
