Welcome to FSJ fun! A friend went down this path with an 83. The one piece shaft does fit but it will not seal. The vacuum disconnect axles have different seals. Apparently there is no matching seal for the 1 piece axle. Something about the diameter. I have heard you can pin or clamp the vacuum disconnect so the axle is engaged all the time. Someone here may have experience with that. Otherwise, you are looking at replacing the axle with the solid shaft style. The narrow track front axle from 80-82 or 85-91 models will be a bolt in.
