5.12 tracker into 87 samurai questions... quick

I was told that tracker 5.12 gears will swap right into my 87 samurai. Supposedly the front 3rd member out of a 94 and newer for my front and 93 and olderfront for my rear. It is that simple? A local yard wants $200 each. Is that unreasonable? Anybody have some to sell?
Thanks!

Yes, they are a direct bolt in but you may want to consider installing the gears in you sami 3rd members. Track/kick fronts are cast aluminum and are weak. Cast steel is much stronger. Not sure, you may need to swap side gears also.

Sidekick front 3rd members.
When installing in the front sammi axles = direct bolt in.
When installing in the rear sammi axles = change out side gears.
That simple.
