my 96 RMW rear end is extremely rough as is the driveshaft. The driveshaft looks like it was battered and deep fried. So these can be swapped out for a OCC 91 rear and driveshaft? As usual thanks for the help! Oh, and the brakes on the RMW are new incl drum shoes cylinders and parking brake cables. The backing plates on the 96 RMW will bolt up too to the OCC axle?

Sedan and Wagon DS are also the same length. I have swapped them to check before.

The only issue is the gear ratio. The OCC had two ratios available; 3.23 (GU5) and 2.73 (GU2). Your computer will need an update. What ratio does your original rear have?
