srw to drw

I have a 98.5 srw cummins truck. I just bought a 40' gooseneck. So i would like to make my truck handle it a little better. I have dually axle out of another 98.5 So is it worth it. Is it a straight swap?? I was thinking I would swap the axle and then take out the overload spring and put air bags on it.

Will it be wroth it?

I'm interested in this because I was thinking about doing the same thing. It should be an easy swap, the drw axle, if out of a dodge as well, will have the same shock mounts and leaf spring mounts to bolt right in, You'd have to get the 1 ton overload springs and the extra bump stop the 1 tons have above the leafs for the second overload. The only thing I see you will have to do is if the drw axle is a Dana 80, you'll have to have your drive shaft shortened.
