1988 bronco with psd

Front end question I'm swapping in a 7.3 powerstroke out of an 95 f-250 (rolled) and while I'm building the shortest 3/4 ton there is I'm swapping out the rear end for the 3/4 ton unit, now does anyone know what i need to put 8 bolt outers onto the stock dana 44 can i just change the hub/rotor assembly will the outer axles work or do they need to be changed or does the wole knuckle assembly need to be changed? i've seen it on other vehicles but the owners didn't know they paid someone to do it for them. and I'm aware that i have to change the front coils and please don't give me any flak about keeping a dana 44 in the front I'm already aware of what I'm doing and if or when it breaks i'll throw a dana 60 under it thanks.

If I was building it and had the rolled truck at my disposal. I would swap out the complete drivetrain. Front and rear axles, Rear Suspension. You will have to do custom front suspension though but it will be worth it. But this is the way I would do it.

If your taking the time to build it. You might as well build it right from the get go. I know you said don't give you flak about keeping the 44. But come on man that 44 will break pretty quick from all that torque from the powerstroke.

Ok I thought the donor was a straight axle.
