i have a 1961 baja project im working on, its got a 60 bug swing axle in it also know as the crash box, no first gear syncros means no downshifting into first without grinding the thing to death. I am getting a real sick deal on a 67 bus swing axle trans and am wondering if my exsisting bug axles with fit the bus trans? i cant find any info anywhere on it... thank you!

Yes the axles will interchange, BUT you will have to flip the differential in the bus trans before you install the axles. If you dont you will have 4 reverse gears and only one forward gear. You could always buy a set of Bugzyla Adapters and bolt the bus trans in as is with the reduction boxes and gain 3 inches of lift. Cool
