That year had a range of different ratios for the rear end. Make sure you got the right one by using the number on the tag attached to the housing. According to http://www.differentials.com/pdfs/38.pdf the axles from your old rear are the same length and splines, so you should be able to use them as long as the rear is the same size. Most here know more than I do about this stuff, so they will correct me if I'm wrong.
