59 Apache Axle

Does anyone know if i can put a 98 transam axle on a 59 apache truck? A friend of mine has the axle sitting in his garage from a TA that was totaled (front end damage).

I guess I should have mentioned that i have the original rear axle for the 59 apache truck currently installed. I want to put an LS1 engine out of a 98 trans am ram air into the truck. Does anybody know if the stock rear would have any issues handling this engine?

I have a 56 Chevy truck and used an '87 F body rear axle. 1993 and up axles are about 4'' wider than the 70-81 and 82-92 camaro axles. Strength wise, third and fourth gen f body axles they aren't that great as they have 7.5/7.625'' ring gears. As a cruiser it's OK. Beat on it and it will break. The 94 and up caprice/Impala has a 8.5'' axle and the width is the same as the truck. However it has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. For heavy hp application, use a 9'' or 8.8'' ford. The Ford Exploder has a 8.8 and is 60'' wide (2'' less than stock). Later ones had disc brakes and up to 4.10 axle ratios.
