Disco/Classic rangie Axle compatibilty


I have a '93 Vogue and recently picked up complete front and rear axle assemblies from a '97 Discovery.
I'm led to believe these will have the stronger 24 spline axles? Although some have suggested my '93 will already have the 24spline jobs?
I've noticed that the rear diff has a rubber coupling rather than a Uni joint.
Is this something I can just change to the Rangie' Uni joint or is it critical to the setup of the diff pinion depth/pre load?
I was thinking of giving both assemblies to a Rover specialist for a once over. Is there anything particular I should get them to look at?

You can swap them/interchange many bits.
The flanges from the range rover can be fit with the correct spacer and no adjustment to the CWP is necessary.

My 93 has the same outer flanges etc as the 97 disco axles I have. I have not however pulled these 93 axle shafts to count the splines on the diff end. I have seen photos of the later style axle shafts with 10 spline inners. So there must have been a transition period.
