I got lucky and picked up a 3.73 5 lug posi about a month ago. So all is good here.
For now anyway.

Good Luck there also with your upgrade Bagged70C-10
I would think he got his answer for what he was looking for. IF ANY BODY ELSE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THESE TRUCKS FOR DISC BRAKE CONVERSIONS, here is what fits what.
63-70 C10 6 lug, center link is (63-70) only, tie rod & adj sleeve 5/8"
71-72 C10 5 lug, center link is (71-72) only, tie rod & adj sleeve 11/16"
73-87 C10 5 lug, center link is (73-87) only, tie rod & adj sleeve 11/16"

I also would think the lower steering arm coming off the spindle is also Year specific

Here are some links with products and info. http://www.performanceonline.com/196...S-PAIR/?page=1

Not to be a smart a$$ here but the 11/16" tie rods have a left & a right hand threads as well as the 5/8' tie rods having the same left & right hand threads. A inner & outer tie rod has to have a left & right hand thread along with the adj sleeve to adjust it. Turning/Adjusting the tie rod adj sleeve pulls or pushes both tie rods at the same time together or apart from each other. --> <-- or <-- -->
