3.73 Dana Reverse cut

I recently bought two Ford 8.8 LSD rear axles. They are both 3.73.
I have a 92 YJ with a 3.07 Dana 30 in front, I think it is a "normal cut."
I'm going to install one of the 8.8 rears into my YJ and from what I've read, there was a 3.73 Reverse cut Dana 30 production axle sometime in the past.
Does anyone know what these came in?

all YJ's have reverse cut front axles.

It's not what you have. It's what you do with what you have

Thanks for the replies.
My buddy told me that the differnce in revers and normal cut is the hi or low pinion.
So, I can look at a truck's front diff and tell by over or below the front axle, whether it it normal or reverse.
I plan to steal the guts out of a cherokee axl and put the important parts into mine.
Ever put used R&P into an existing housing? Would it be okay for a trail rider?

Guys swap used gears around all the time. No problem.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
