I believe it should be a straight swap only requiring new u-bolts and gear oil and such. I have the dana 80 saddles that came with the axle. Is there anything else I need to be aware of or look for or need to change?
There is no such axle combination... An internet rumor that seemingly wont go away because people dont understand what they're talking about. The Hybrid SRW Dana 80 is the same as the DRW Dana 80 except for spindles. SAME...

Well, best laid plans of mice and men. They shipped me the wrong axle. They sent me what I had in the truck a dana 70-2U instead of the dana 80 I wanted to upgrade to. I decided to keep it and put it in since the donor vehicle only had 143000 miles and I really need the truck back on the road it's been 3 weeks. I opened it up and checked everything and it all looked great. Does anyone by chance have the OEM part numbers for the rear parking brake cables left and right or know where I can look it up. Its a 98 ram 2500 extended cab long bed 4x4. Any help would be much appreciated.
