    the search feature is your friend.

    but yes they will work

    in the front a 3/4 ton axle is the same, driveshaft wise, and in the rear you need a conversion u joint that can be found at any auto parts store

    they might. you'll need different u-joints at the axle end.

    this is covered A LOT. you're new so you didn't know.

    they will physically fir under the truck. you'll have to do a few things to make them work.
