did you keep the bearings with there pinions the outside diamiter should be the same but if all else fails you could just switch housings and all pretty ez thats what i do i have three rear ends set up so all i have to do is bolt them up and put my hardened axle in on the right side

I agree with powerglide,although every 79 I have seen has had the small bearings.
