    Just recently I decided to swap my Dana 60 stub shafts for the 1.5" 35 spline shafts and upon removing the inner shafts, discovered they are the less desirable tapered shafts. I got a decent deal on some non-tapered inner shafts, so I'm gonna go ahead and install them. One question though, do I need to replace anything like seals or bearings to make the straight shafts fit? The axle is pretty freshly rebuilt so seals and bearings should still be good. Thanks.

    nope...just shove them in. they only taper in the center so nothing is affected.
