The conversion from vacuum hubs to live axle happened mid model year in 2000. My 2000 has live axle, but not all of them do. To be safe, you should go with the parts from an 01.

thanks guys but a buddy of mine told me all I had to do was the vacuum hub mod and it work. Simple as taking the hub off and removing a metal clip. So now I basically bypass the vacuum system and have live axels
