    If you are asking about the rear differential, then yes it will fit, it is the same.

    I think the only difference is a couple of drum brake pieces and possibly the U-joint design at the pinion.

    Conversion U-joints are available, if needed.

    The rear end is a direct swap at the spring perches, shocks and brake lines.

    On the later models the brake line junction block is different and in a slightly different location, but will work. You should be able to transfer your brake line assemble to the newer unit if you want to make it look and connect like original.
