Dana 50

So I managed to break the spline joint between the outer and inner front drive shafts on the passenger side of my 97 f250. (Put it in 4wheel before I hit the dirt and made a tight turn on some pavement). I know the thing to do would be a solid axle swap. But I just don't have the cash right now and I really need my 4x4 this winter because this is going to be my groups tow vehicle for our ice racing car!

I just found a listing on craigslist for someone selling a set of front axels out of an '88 Dana 50. My question is will these fit?

Thanks guys.
