Re: Chevy TRE taper same as Ford TRE taper??

I wish I could find one to borrow/rent local in Colorado, otherwise I guess I'm going to have to fork over the $$$. LOL
I know I'll have to ream the hole in the TRE to fit the DLE. I'm talking about the taper in the knuckles. Can I use Chevy TREs in Ford knuckles without reaming the knuckles?? Thanks
