I recently purchased a used 10.5" 14 bolt axle from a 1994 van.  The WMS to WMS width is 70" with a pinion offset of 1-1/2".  My truck is a '81 K20 Silverado with 9.5" 14 bolt, and WMS to WMS width of 67".  As you all know the front axle WMS to WMS is wider by 2" on each side.  I have a plan to cut both tubes on the 10.5" full floater, remove a 1/2" from both sides, and swap the left to the right and vice versa.  This plan would center the pinion, and create a WMS to WMS of 69".  I use my truck as a daily driver, I occasionally haul with it, and rarely take it off road.  It has a 4" lift so I don't take turns fast, but I do drive it fast down the interstate.  I know there are some former GM guys on here.  Are there any handling type issues with making the rear end closer in width to the front end?

Plan on installing some 60/40 seats sometime in the future. Trying to figure out what color to look for. Interior has brown dash pad. roof/doors/floor under seat,bottom of dash is all factory paint. I think its cream beige. With door panels slightly darker like a tan. I thought about tan seats since my bench is like a tan but I think it may look worse to be a close match. So I thought just go totally different like in the grey family. Since those are pretty common.

Definitely want 60/40 (or 40/20/40) with flip down console being I have 2 kids. So buckets are out.

What you guys suggest?

Im not a new member but has been awhile since i have been online.  I go by Hosscatt. My wife and I have 1985 silverado it has  230000 miles on the orignal paint which does not look bad. WE bought the truck in 1991 from neigbor whic he bought new. As i said the paint is all orignal that were the orignal stops .I took v6 out of truck about 15 years ago, make long story short on engines ,I just dropped 383 stroker in last month with 700r tranny and now has 343 gear posi also has msd fuel injection on it. This truck has always been in AZ. no rust. When i get it detail and cleaned up will post pics if ican find out how to do. I would like to know if anyone has put cold air intake on there truck. Also does anyone know of some one in phx area that works on the msd fuel injection, mine working good but would like to get fine tuned. Thanks Hosscatt

Hi all,
I have a 1985 K10 Suburban with Rear A/C.
I cant seem to find what the original R12 Capacity is or the Oil Capacity.
I have a new compressor, dryer, and orifice tube.
But now I need to know what the original capacity is to calculate how much to refill with R134A and Pag 150.
Does anyone have a link or the specs for the conversion?
Thanks in Advance
