14 Bolt Easy ???

Finaly found a 14 bolt for cheap. I know the difference betwwen the SF and the FF axles. The differences that i have found is not the FF being bolted on but rather the center part of the axle not being a flat flange but rather shapped more like a C clipped axle. Not sure if the 14 bolt came with that option. The pic below is of the axle in question. Is this a full floating axle or a semi floating???

that is a FF axle and it appears it's running very small lug studs. IIRC my 14bolts all have 9/16" studs.

Smaller lugs wouldnt be a sign of a none favorable 14 bolt. Would it.

The studs are right. It just looks that way compared to the big wheel.

So right know i have two 14 bolt axles lined up to buy. But i only need one.

This one is for sale for $150. Coming out of a 1989 3500 chevy.





This one ive got lined up for a straight trade for a bumper that ive got. Only rhing is i can sell the bumper for $450 bucks alone. Came out of a 1976 K20






Driving distance is the same. So thats not an issue.

I have never paid more than $150 for a pull out FF rear axle.

And only once have I paid more than $100 for a 14 ff Rear. They areone of the most common axles out there, and there are more crushed everyday than I care to think about.......Buy the cheap one.

Thats what I keeped on reading about everyone only paying 150 for them but it seems like everyone in my area is selling rhem for 300 and up hence why i havent gotten one yet. But might have finally found one for 150.

Most people that know they are only worth that dont bother to post them.

I've been given probably 20 of them in the last 7 years.....Sometimes we just pull the shafts and save the gears and turf them.

Only way I would pay more than $100 for one personally is if it has an open carrier. And open carrier is worth more than a complete gov lock axle.

The first one appears to be a cab and chassis axle? If it is its narrower and the spring perches are closer together compared to the k20.

Looks like the over all consensus is to go with 150 buck axle. Obviously this is common sense just wasnt sure if one of the two was more favorable over the other. Thanks for all the insight.
