    What is it going into? 2wd, 4x4?

    WMS to WMS should be the same. You may need to add shock mounts and spring pads but it isnt going to be a big problem. Brake parts are not the same between the Dana or Eaton axles but most of the important measurements are.

    You can also upgrade the Eaton with Corp 14FF axle shafts and carrier gears to get 31 spline shafts.
