Jeep Dana 44 conversion question

I'm in the process of building an '85 CJ7 and i cam across a set of dana 44 axles off of an international scout II. I know very little about axles and was hoping someone could help me out with some questions. Will these work for my CJ7? Is it worth getting the front axle? Is he asking the right price for them? Anything else i should know about them? Below is the info and pics he has them posted for. Thanks in advance!

-International Scout II Dana 44 front axle(***PASSENGER SIDE DROP****), has Warn axle shafts/stub shafts(I believe theyre 30 spline), ARB air locker, 4.10 gears, Superwinch hubs, spare hub parts, Pro Comp stainless brake hoses, disc brake conversion, 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern-$850

-International Scout II Dana 44 rear has brand new Yukon 4.10 gearset and Detroit Locker($840 in new parts) with 30 spline Warn full floating axles and Warn locking hubs, disc brake conversion with Procomp stainless brake hose, 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern-$850

I'd go after them. Youll have to make outboard mounts for the front springs. Also will need to cut the spring perches off the rear and move them in a touch unless it is already setup for a cj. And in my opinion it would be best to replace the lockouts on the rear with drive flanges

The P/O had them setup to put on his YJ so not sure if he already moved the mounts. I know dana 44's are expensive but is 850/each alot for them?

The price is on the high side, even with the extras they have.

Given your lack of knowledge on axles I have to ask what is your reason for thinking that a swap is needed?

There is also a metric crapton of information already on the web on what is needed to swap IH D44s into a CJ.

With a ll the upgrades it seems pretty reasonable. I see high steer, full float you said lockers and after market gear sets that stuff is pricy. I would offer him less just to see if he would take it.

The only thing that strikes me as odd is the disc brake conversion on the front. It should of had disc to begin with
