Default rearend swap ?

Hi guys thinking of swappin my rear end in my foxbody for one of a sn95 cause i wanna do the 5 lug conversion my question is i hear the axles are longer? so will that set me out too far, from me using a 15x10 tire with 275/50/r15 rubber? will i rub
or could i just use the sn95 axles with my original 8.8 from my car and shave down the axle ends.. or did i hear wrong and the axles are the same size?

I'm pretty sure the axles have to come out of a ranger or aerostar and the spindles can come off of the SN95.

dont use the sn 95 rear, like stated above get axles from a ranger from the junkyard and keep the stock width, chances are your not going to fit a 15x10 back there anyways
