Well, for a while I've been wanting to upgrade the drivetrain on my Suburban to 3/4 or 1 ton strength, and my puny 10-bolt with 3.08s just wasn't going to do the job. So, I set out in the local junkyard to find a suitable 14-bolt axle. Well, I found a 14-bolt and a set of 1-ton leaf springs in a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1-ton 4x4. I got it for $88 including a $10 core charge. Only took around 2.5 hours to remove with having the wrong tools; however, it probably took me another hour to get the junkyard guys out with a forklift to drag the axle up to the front... it only weighs in the neighborhood of 300 pounds! :gasp: I've been researching the ever-famous disc brake conversion on it. However, it seems like I hit a roadblock. It appears that I have a second-design 14-bolt that includes a different hub that allows for the drum to be removed separate from the hub. Is there a disc brake conversion kit that will allow me to convert to discs without switching to the first-design hubs? If not, where would be a good place to source the first-design hubs? Obviously the local junkyard doesn't have them because I would have picked up an older-model axle if there was one available. Also, anything else I should know about these axles? I am pretty sure I'm going to have to relocate the spring perches because both sets on the axle seem to be in the wrong spot. I'm hoping Tim can help me here. And now for some pics of my newest project arty: : And the leafs I got. These things are frigging heavy too! Thanks for any help guys!
