Chevy 14 bolt conversion info?

So who on the forum has swapped a Chevy 1 ton 14 bolt axle under their rear end? I've seen BrettMavriK's Centurion Bronco project where he put one under his, but I'm looking for some help on what all mods would be needed. I've got a bad Pinion gear and at the cost of rebuilding my axle I've thought about swapping out/upgrading the rear axle. A local parts yard I've got plenty of stuff from has a 14 bolt with disc brakes and the 14b is known for its strength and it gives me the disc brake conversion.

what gears are in it? what is the spring perch measurement? WMS to WMS?

with disc brakes you may notice lack of stopping power in the rear until you chnage teh proportioning valve or you pump the brakes

why not buy another rear axle? can normally be found for less than 200?

I haven't got a chance to do the measurements on the 14 bolt just yet, and I'd prefer to get another 10.25 rear axle, but everyone around here has either crushed theirs(even the posi) or they want close to $500 for it. Highway robbery for a bare used open axle to me.

Yep, I actually gave away a cab and chassis dually rear once, but for a Posi rear $500ish isn't HORRIBLE, but thats for a danged open. If I can get my hands on the C5 axle I'd probably be ok with paying $400 or so.

Where are you located? I have a 10.25 I would let go for a reasonable price and I'm sure there are others around.

I'm out of Spartanburg, SC and the axle is 4.10 and am ready to get my truck back running. I've already dumped $600 in it this last month and its been down that long too.

I have an extra 10.25 axle that could use a rebuild for 50 bucks if you want it

I appreciate it, but I've got the same thing sitting here, just has bad pinion bearing and pinion gear. Just don't feel like messing with it right now.
