axles wont make any difference to the speed

T box in the disco is probably 1.2 ratio so you will have less revs at any given speed in high range (low range is the same as your current T box) it will take longer to accelerate but if the engine has the grunt you will have a better top speed.

you may need to change the speedo drive pinion when you do the change over too - just use the one from your existing T box

its quite an easy changeover as its all unbolt rebolt - a diff lock prop shaft tool would be a useful investment prior to doing the work!

forgot to add i am assuming you have a 90, if its a 110 then the rear axle wont be a straight swap - you will need a longer prop - although you would gain discs (over drums?) you would loose a very good reliable diff by changing to the disco axle on a 110
