Obs axle differences

I am swapping from 4.1 to 3.55 in my 96 and found one from a 1990. Will this work for my swap looking at parts only thing I found different between two is brake cylinders with late being 1.25 bore vs 1. Also anyone know if later brake cylinders will actually work both on my 96 are new.

Re: Obs axle differences

you will probably have to use the 96 backing plates on the 90 axle too. if i remember correctly 96 used larger drums also.
