Dana 44 spider gears: same in open and ls carriers?

Been searching, looking up the spider kit on a couple of online retail sites, and can't find a different set of parts for the open-carrier vs. trac-loc D44 spider and sidegear set. Anyone know if they are the same?

Found this in the rear diff of my (new to me) 01 TJ w/ D44/ls:



I have an old set of spiders from my aussie install in my XJ d44 -- should I just swap those in? Go new? Opinions?

Got lucky as there is no major damage to the r&p -- very small nick on one tooth of the ring. The chunks that came off the spiders were small enough to mind their own business at the bottom of the pumpkin I guess...

Thanks!

Yeah, thanks. I will pull the broken ones out and compare them. Might re-use the old ones I have. I will have to buy some parts though-- looks like the spring/thrust washer/ whatever that sits under the drivers side sidegear is busted too -- this may have started the whole thing with chunks of it jamming in the sidegears.
