Changing out Ford 9 inch Gears

Question again for you guys. I have a Ford 9 inch third member that currently has 3.25 gears in it. Having never done a gear swap on a 9 inch before, are there any issues with putting in a set of 4.30's in the same carrier and housing? They should just swap out correct?

I am putting the 3rd member into a different 9 inch housing then the original one it was in (so it will be the housing and axels from one 9 inch and the 3rd member from a second 9 inch being melded together). They are 28 spline axels and they slide right into the third member that I am going to use if you need to know that. Thanks.
