    the soring pads are 1/2" off so the springs have to be played with to bolt up, or you can space the spring bushings.
    The gears and lockers I believe are the same, but the shafts and outs stuff is different.
    Not sure on the steering stuff. Shannon will know.

    yes it will i have one in mine /forums/images/icons/smile.gif the spring pearches are slightly off but all you need to do is spreed the springs a little and it fits fine /forums/images/icons/smile.gif you will need chevy spring plates if you want to run the sway bar you will also need a chevy steering arm ($40 locally) and a chevy yoke for the drive line ($25 locally)
