1979 Chevy Caprice Classic rear end swap

What different years and model types of rear ends will fit these Caprices. I'm looking for the big 10 bolt rear ends or the 12 bolt rear ends. The bolt pattern for the wheels is not important.

All 1977-1990 B-body and C-body cars. The 1991-96 axles bolt in, but they are a little wider. Also, the B-body wagon axles are wider still. Most of the C-body cars (Olds 98, Buick Electra, Caddy Fleetwood) came with 8.5" axles or larger.
