Default 14Bolt FF for SF swap?

Will a 14bolt FF be a direct swap in place of my 14bolt SF on my Suburban? Do they use same U joints, perches, E brake hook up, ect ect? Also is the spring perches from a truck the same width as my Burb?

It needs to be from the same generation truck as far as the perches are concerned. U-bolts will be different due to the diameter difference of the tubes. Same for spring plates.

E-brake connections can vary. The one that went into my Suburban had different backing plates, but I found a set off another 14bFF that had the correct cable inputs for my truck's cables.

I didn't have to change mine from the 14bSF to the 14bFF.

the 9.5 and 10.5 must have the same tube diameter , i have a set of the lower 88-98 body style axle plates and they fit either axle perfectly
