Early 99 F350 hub bearing vs. late 99

I have a 1999 F-350 DRW built 6/99(from the tag in the driver door jam). I was told buy the dealer that it needed a bearing hub. I got one based on the build dates(pre 3-22-99 or later). I removed the hub and flipped it over and the rear of this is a different size (I attached a picture). The axle has a huge pitman arm and a 1" track bar with huge bolts(maybe 32mm), which I understand to be late 99 indentifiers. It also has the square u-bolts. The rear of the bearing appear to be a early 99 bearing but all the indicators point to the late 99 axle, can this be the case? If so can I use the late bearing if it originally had the early bearing? I did put the bearing in the knuckle and it fit fine butted right up against the knuckle and did not seem to have any drag when I spun it be hand. Has anyone else had this iisue or know if it will work?

I found my answer. If you go from early 99 to late 99 you need to change the rotor to late 99 also.

i also have an early 99. I put a wheel bearing from a 2000 . I ended up making a 1/8th" spacer for the caliper bracket the space it out and was able to use the same rotor . The 99 bearing was ALOT more money then the 2000 so i made it work. works great 10K+ miles with no problems.
