one ton dually conversion to srw

I have searched for this topic. I am having my dually brought home tomarrow, I traded my blazer for. I want to put my 3/4 ton 14 bolt in the rear and use offroad designs shackle reversal. I know that a dually has a 40.5 in spring space and the others are 43 in approx wide. Now my question is what do i need to swap these rears so I can have a single wheel. Oh and by the way its a crew cab 4 door. Easier to take the wife and 3 kids mudding in.

you are puting a 3/4t 14b in the rear, THAT IS ALL READY SRW.

just cut the pearchs off and weld new ones in.


you cannot make the drw d70 a arw, the housing is way to wide.

the front is simple, buy some srw hubs and rotors, install.

fwiw, leave all the dualy stuff on there, by some 2" wheel spacers for the rear and call 406yj and buy some h1 setups.

Well that just summed up what I gotta do. Bought an '80 crew cab today myself

thanks for the info but i knew what i needed for the front but i was was wondering which is easier welding spring perches or using the ton 14 bolt srw rear end as it has the same perch spacing as the dually.

When i did it i just went to a junkyard here and bought a one ton rear(75.00), changed gear oil, locker, cleaned it up, disc brake kit (tossed the drums and that crap) and bolted it in...much easier than the perch cut off deal. Unless you cant find one use what you got, ruff stuff makes a nice kit for that.

Are you puttin in a big lift in the truck? If so cutting the perches and welding new ones would be a good idea, you could line up the driveline angle perfect with out using those stupid angle spacers.

You're wondering which would be easier?

option #1

1. remove spring perches from donor axle
2. measure twice
3. weld new spring perches on
4. bolt axle in place

option #2

1. bolt axle in place

Answer seems fairly obvious.

actually got truck home today and after work measured my srw 14 and found out that it already was 40.5 in spacing so its a direct bolt in. So that was easy. Now just got to get the right shackle reversals from ord. Im thinking that dually set about 2 inches higher in the rear anyway so shackle reversal gives me four and i could get 6 in front springs. Thanks for the advice and help.
