1456 wide front on a 560?

Getting ready to make a couple hour drive this weekend to pick up an 806 wide front end. I have ambitions on installing it on a 560D. However I came across a front end off of a 1456 locally. My question is will the 1456 front end work on the 560?  I thought I’d get opinions here until I was able to research it more tonight.

The frames are wider for one thing , not sure the bolster would even work. and I know the rear stabilizer casting won't work

The front will bolt right to the bolster.  Certain that the rear mount will not line up right.  I saw a 766 with a wet bolster that the owner had pulled the narrow front off and installed a 1456 front axle.  It was in the paint booth between coats.
