No you have an AMC '83 and a Chrysler '91... Chrysler widened the body if I remember correctly... But I am not a jeep expert only a connoisseur

you can try using self tapping screws , but predrill the holes to sve stripping. after a time this will loosen up usually a year. this is when you have to get creative. i have a novel solution which is only for the stout hearted. considering the year of the jeep in question you go for it the first time through save time.

You will need more than just the length of the housings to do that. you need to know the distance from spring perch to spring perch, distance from perch to backing plate on each side and the offset of the center section, so that when mounted, the driveshafts are not running at an angle. You also need to find the pinion angle at rest: (the amount of upward or downward pitch of the pinion)
In making these measurements you can avoid the possibility of having one axle protruding further past the springs, or damaging universal joints by having them run at an angle that isn't correct.
You can find lots of info on swaps at several online jeep forums. Many of the people there have done swaps and have taken those measurements and have the info you need to do it correctly.
If you have access to a welder, cutting tools and jigs, that opens up numerous possibilities as any differential can be used in any vehicle if it is properly prepared before install!! Just offhand, i don't think that the wagoneer units will fit because it is much wider than a cj. Try jeepforums .com for swap info.

Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.

Testimonial: "But what if I am doing this in my garage without a lift?"
SOURCE: rusted wrangler frame
Rusted frame repair is a touchy situation.
Depending on what area of the frame is rusted, the saftey concern can vary.
If your a DIY preson, you can elad on some repair plates to cure some problems.
If it's in an area where a suspension part or steering component mounts, then repairs are touchy.
