front and rear axle swap tomorrow!

so im picking up a d30/d35 set tomorrow with 3.73s. yes i know the d35 sucks. tell me something i dont already know. anywho, i have an 01 that is equipped with ABS. The axles i am getting arent ABS. is it as simple as swapping the axle shafts for the tone ring, the ABS terminal in the drum, and the electrical? let me know what i need to do. ill be doing a super35 soon as well as an auto locker for my d30. sye is ordered this week.

Yep you described all you have to do to get the ABS working again. Not so sure you'll be able to retain ABS after installing the Super 35 though, I'm not so sure the ABS's tone rings that are on the axle shafts can be moved over to the new Super 35's 30 spline axle shafts. I'm not sure if that outer part of the axle shaft that the tone ring is seated onto is the same diameter or not.

When you have a choice, buy American.

But having ABS only in the front will work fine, correct? Im looking to upgrade the brakes/rotors before the S35
