Trailing arm upgrade/replacement

Hi everyone,

Can I use a right rear trailing arm that I have from an 86 325es on my 85 325e (7/85 prod)? I just realized that the two have different part numbers. If all things are equal except the size of the bearing (?), I would like put the later one in and be happy I got a bigger bearing. Are there any drawbacks to this?

Any advice/experience from you all would be much appreciated!
