Smile 1997 F250 PS solid axle swap from 99 F250 Possible??

HI,
New to this wonderful forum here. I currently have a 97 F250CC PS. It's got the wimppy ttbD50. I currently just took hold of a set of axles from a rolled 99 F250. My question is, Can the axles from the 99F250 both front and rear be swapped into my 97 F250? I did some measurements and seems as though the mounting points for the leafs springs are the same. Any info, or help is great appreciated thanks.

Yes you can you will need some custom parts but if I can put '08 axles in my '97 those will be easy!

a straight axle from an 01 dually would not bolt right up to my 95, you wouldve had to move the shock perches, and custom make the sway bar brackets.

What does it cost to put 08 axles in a 96 F350 front and back?
