Since you're alredy set up with the 10 bolt 8.5, i'd just buy some good axles, the big 10 is not that weak.

One of our Own ( Rudy Holloway) had a complete braced 9 inch rear with brackets and all ( except brakes).......he woud make you a good deal i am sure if he still has it..
only question is what width would work for you.

you might wanna look around a little before you spend that money for those axles...people are getting rid of some pretty good stuff right now..would be a shame for you to invest that $ 300 or so in those 10 bolt axles when you could have spent a little more and stepped up to a nice 12 bolt or 9 inch............Just my two cents..

Brian,
Thanks for the heads up my friend!
The 9" I had is gone, purchased by a local bracket racer.
