What we are trying to say is rebuilding requires special tools so you can recalibrate the gears.
Tell the salvage yard the year/make/model and add it's got 3.73s. They should sell you the correct axle, and remove it for you.
You want to be sure the attachment for the front driveshaft is the same, there's 2 styles. A good junkyard should know this, but you still need to double check.
Swapping an axlehousing is a big job on the surface, but not difficult if you read up.
