It took about 2 weeks for me to fully complete due to a lack of parts. Waiting on parts to be shipped really holds things up.
I will have all the parts here before I start..

It should be OK Im thinking because the diameter of the tube does not change nor does the axle shaft diameter at the flange, on a 28 spline i believe it steps down at the carrier bearings..I will see if I can verify

I am wrong the 31 spline has a bigger bolt pattern on the axle flange and a larger diameter tube also........
