Post 8.2 and 8.5

I was wondering what the differences of the 8.2 and the 8.5 rear ends besides the ring gear size and the year camaro/firebirds they came with. Externally they look the same and I was wondering if you could put a posi unit from an 8.2 into an 8.5 housing and vise versa. My problem is that I have a 69 camaro with the 8.2 rear end and the housing is cracked and leaks oil. Im parting out an 81 camaro with the 8.5 rear end and I want to put the guts of the 8.2 into the 8.5 housing and bolt the 8.5 rear end into the 69 camaro. Can I do this??
