early Dana 44s from cj5s were 19 spline 2 piece shafts, you wouldn't want to use the carriers.

Considering that the Waggy axles probably don't have the right carriers for 5.38's it's not a bad assumption that the carriers are wanted also.

Yes, the gears will work. No the carriers won't. All bases covered now.

The carrier break is 3.73/3.92. Just make sure you get the correct locker and you'll be good to go.
