It won't fit. It is a couple of inches wider, and the spring mounts are in a different location. I thought the same thing you are thinking quite some time ago, only to find that when I got the rearend to the car, it would not fit without being narrowed, and the spring mounts relocated.

I don't think it would actually have to be narrowed to fit. All you would need to do to make it work is run more backspace on your rims something like an extra 1" of backspace perside(there abouts)...BUT the spring perches would still need to be relocated...;)
