It should be a direct bolt in. I do know the spline count is different inside the carrier though. Just remember you will have to swap the rear axle as well or you will have 2 different ratios fighting the t/case which will make things bad.

If you wanted to use a v6 model (R200) you would need the complete axle assembly to include the hubs.

As long as the U joint splines are the same I see no reason it won't just drop in.





For the record, there is no reason to clutter up the forum by posting the same thing in 3+ different places. Pretty poor way for a newbie to introduce themselves by making the mods have to clean up clutter. Just food for thought.

I’ve done some more researching and found that in 1993 they changed the spline count from 27 to 28 to goes into the hub for the wheel but still use the 6 bolt flange.. so i could use the 97 carrier but would just have to use cv axles that i have now right? Cause i don’t see any splines on the carrier itself

The flange should be the same, just different spline on the CV.



As long as your u joints bolt up every should drop right in.
