I have done this before ( installing new diff or replacing open diff for posi ) and have not had a problem. If there is not a lot of wear you should be fine. If you know someone in your area, get a second opinion on pinion & ring gear condition.

My credo
get outta my way, I'm falling!
how many miles? rough or easy life? stock tires or bigger ones? why are you rebuilding it? is your goal better acceleration, or better freeway manners? or just keeping it running as is?
