GT ZR 3.0 Carbon Fork Replacement

Need some bike geometry advice for road bike touring. My front fork is the original 2001 carbon fork and I found a replacement Cr-Mo Tange front fork with nearly the same geometry.

My carbon fork is:

375mm from Axle to Crown
43mm rake
1 1/8" Threadless
Not sure about the Steering Tube, however it measures right at 6.0" from bottom of crown to top of steering frame tube - or 152-odd mm.

The Soma Pescadero is:
Axle to crown: 383mm
Rake: 43mm
Steerer: 1-1/8"
With mini-rack mounts and double eyelets at the dropouts

The Soma's website is:

What other information will I need to insure fit?

Thanks for the replies on the other thread on long skewers to caution about carbon forks.

Soma Pescadero Fork: I like the braze-on's.

Thanks for responding.
