78 dana 44 locker swap into 89 help

I have a Dana 44 front axle with a ARB Locker and 4.10 gears from a 78 Bronco. I want to install it into the Dana 44 in my 1989 Bronco. Does anyone know if the spline count on the axles is different from 78 to 89? If it is different, then when did they change it? I know I have to swap the actual locker into the new housing. I just want to make sure the axles will fit.

I want to do this so that I have matching gear ratios for the front and back. I am also going to swap the Ford 9inch out of the 78 into the 89, but I know that is a easy swap.

If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

I went to the Tractech website and came up with two different part numbers. maybe I was just reading it wrong.
