I appologize. I know this is a very simple question and I am sorry to ask it.

Can I put the rear and front axle from a 91-2.4L onto a 91-4.0L?

I have a 91 sport. I would like to be able to tow a trailer up some steep highway grades and just have more power. At 65 mph in 4th gear I am at about 2300 - 2400 rpm with 29" tires.

My plan is (thanks to the help of 1fox2go, ThePhantum and Titan4u2c) to change the current gearing from 3.07 to 3.73 or 4.10 and change to heavier leaf springs (and probably add a 2" lift at the same time). A friend suggested hitting the junkyards and just replacing the front and rear axles instead of changing out the gears.

Is this a good idea?
Would 3.73 or 4.10 be better?

Thanks for the help and sorry for such an easy question.
