    I am pretty sure you will need to cut and reweld the spring mounts and sway bar mounts to make it fit. You might have to get a speacial U joint to make it fit. Make sure the the nose of the rear end is not any shorter or longer than the original or you may have to change your drive line. I put a 14 bolt semi floater 6 lug in my k1500 suburban. I got it on ebay for $600.

    well hopefully the pinion bearing and new seal is all it will take to repair the one on the truck.if that wont work ill look for a cheap replacemeant axle..if i can find one ill either sell the truck before i leave in a month or just let it sit and rebuild the entire drivetrain when i get back to the state in a year
