Axle swap

Good Morning, I have a 92, 2w, d250,automatic. The rear end 9 (dana 70, 3.54 ratio. posi.)was clunking AND GOT WORSE AND IS NOW GRINDING BAD AND THE TRUCK BARELY MOVES. I found a 2001 2w, dana, 3.54, posi.,axle disc. with drum e brake axle to replace it.
Will it fit if I cut off the shock mount brackets and use my old u bolt plate for the shock mount (the 92 axle is 42", the 2001 is 43" where the springs mount)?
Will the drive shaft spline match?
Will I have to shorten the drive shaft?
Will I need different rims (17") to accept the new style hubs?
Are the stud and lug nut the same (thread pitch)?
Any other problems or fabrication you can think of?
Thank You

Much more work and cost than benefit to be gained. Get a 1993 or older axle, reuse the sure grip limited slip differential with new bearings and clutches if not in the donor axle.
