1973 Bronco axels

Hey so here is 2 quick questions. A buddy of mine is willing to sell me the front Dana 40 out of his 1973 Bronco. Now will this fit under my truck with no fabing of the actual axle it self. I.E having to pull the tubes and then shortening them etc etc. and 2 another buddy of mine is selling his super swamper's that are 35s. the are off of a 2000 Chevy 1/2 ton. Will the bolt pattern be the same .


Cheers
Chris

Bolt pattern is different. As far as the axle fitting go through all the sas threads and do some research.

any driver side drop axle will work with the proper amount of work.. it doesnt have the be the same width.. my axles are stock width F-150 axles.. the fronts about to be from an F350.

the tires may fit, the bolt pattern on the wheel wont.

So you have a full size rear end. Your tires must be weigh out there then. Or did you shorten you axle tubes

didnt touch the width.
beard is full width too.

4" back spacing on the wheels sucks it in some, but I want some 3" BS to stick them out a little more.
