Is there a difference between an axle from a pre 99 and a 99 and up?
outside of gear ratios and posi non-posi. I was wondering if one out of a
97 would bolt up fine in my 00. Weird question I guess feel free to slap me.

Pretty sure the 88-98's had a different spring perch width. I can't recall if it is narrower or wider than a 99-up axle.

Edit: Also the 00' may have disk brakes where the 97' has drums.

I might know of where one is sitting. I might have to run around and check but. It was a thought that crossed my mind.
