The angle of the upper controll arm eyes is different. You will have to fabricate some controll arms to correct the angle difference. You will also have to modify or replace the lower controll arm brackets on the axle tubes. The bolt pattern for the wheels is also going to be different. The "posi" is going to be the Auburn, so chances are it's pretty worn, and they can not be rebuilt. Look into rebuilding the BOP 8.2 rear end that you have instead of doing this swap. You may be better off with your rear end rebuilt. The BOP 8.2 is a pretty strong rear end.
