yes you can swap rear ends from late model to early model and visa versa... as long as the gear ratios are the same. the rear ends in my 1996 full size and my 1986 full size are exactly the same except for a 3.08 ratio and a 3.42 gear ratio...

No. The spring perches are in different locations between the OOBS ('73-'87) and the OBS ('88-'98) trucks.
