Hi Chris, in 1973 the 340 Duster came stock with an 8-1/4 rearend, so you can diffently use it. Sunnit racing carries a mopar performance suregrip unit for it for around $225. You may want to change your ring & pinion at the same time depending on the ratio you have now. I'm not sure about the tranny, if it's a 727 you're good to go.
