Came across a set of rear axel assemblies for a type 1. Can I swap mine out for these?

No, the rear axle and the transaxle flanges are unique to the VW Thing, plus the CV joints have a bigger range of motion.

If your Thing has a Beetle transmission you might be able to use them, but it is not recommended
