4-link/rear end question

I need to find a rear end for my s/c dragster with 4-link brackets that are 16" center to center. The only one I have found so far is a Mark Williams 12 bolt, which makes sense because the blueprints for the dragster were Mark Williams. The 12 bolt seems extremely expensive. Would there be any interference problems with purchasing a 9" chassis engineering housing and welding on the 4-link brackets myself? Chassisworks only goes as narrow as 16 1/2" and Strange only 17". Do I have any other options? I'm sure the M/W housing is a professional modular housing but at $1,500 for a bare housing and $4,800 loaded it seems very expensive. Thanks, BF

Might try Moser Engineering, or Undercover Chassis! If I were changing I would go with a 9 IN Ford no matter what the cost.
