Ok guy's I've finally found a part-time front end for my 78 full-time P/W that i'll be rebuilding soon, My next Quest is swapping my rear so the bolt pattern matches the front. My question is can I simply swap the axles and drums from a later model 8 1/4 onto mine? I realize the best thing would be to trade out the whole thing for a 9 1/4, but the funds are getting low plus I just got a super deal on a Lock-right locker for the 8 1/4 that I'd really like to use. Anyway, Are the splines on the older axles the same as the newer ones with the bigger pattern? And will the drums fit on my truck? Hopefully someone out there has tried this and any comments are helpful, Thanks
