Question about 1998 Chevrolet C/K 3500
I have a 1998 c/k3500 with a 14 bolt rear end with a gear ratio 4:10 and found a ford E350 van with 3:70 wanting to swap them for fuel mileage will this work? thanks
Is the c/k 3500 4 wheel drive?If it is 4WD,you must retain the same gear ratios for both front and rear axles,or the transfer case will be damaged.If it is 2 wheel drive,you can install any gear you like.I believe the Ford E350 rear axle is a Dana 70,as i have rebuilt 2 of that model,along with Dana 60's.The Ford unit likely will not be a bolt in.It will probably require professionally welding new mount brackets on the Ford axle housing.The width needs to be measured from inside the brake backing plate to the other brake backing plate to see if it will physically fit.Good luck.
