To the best of my memory any Chevy or GMC 1/2 ton 1971 and 1972 you can just swap the axles and brake drums into your rear end housing for a 5 on 5" lug pattern.For the front I like to change the whole front end from a 1973 to 1985. The whole cross member with power steering and disc brakes and 5 on 5" pattern bolts in with very little modification.We did it on my son in law's 65 Chevy.It worked out great.You can usually find a donor truck cheap.You can also use the new style engine mounts.
