Or is there a swap out there that will work? I'm just trying to get my ducks in a row before jumping in.
Well, the driveshaft almost certainly changes length, and I guarantee the U joint does. The width is a bit off, and you'll need the Motorsport axle and drum kit to install 5-bolt wheels.
Why don't you just do a 9" instead? It could all be stone-stock then, at least to look at it. That would sure make life easy when you need maintenance.
