It was a little pain in the *** to do. It is a straight swap though. Worst part about it was getting the front end high enough to get it out. I imagine if you had access to a lift life would be alot easier. I changed the axles at the same time. You would use the same original axles not ones for a zr2. The zr2 axles are longer and will not work.

its kind of hard to tell by the pics I posted. The rear sticks out of the fender a little more than the front. I would have been cool to have the front the same way. I would recommend if your going to swap yours out to go ahead replace all the worn parts since most of them will be off anyway.
