Changing Swingarm R6

I recently bought a new used swingarm that has nothing on it except the frame itself. I want to take out all the internals and use my same shock and dog bones from my old swingarm. Is there anything I need to look out for when making the switch as far as greasing stuff up and making certain adjustments? Any helpful input is appreciated. And no.. i don't want a 12 bar nor a cage so please no stunter comments.

TIA

Los

Would you say this is something one can achieve on his own? Or would i need a 2nd pair of hands?
