Question '79 Chev Rearend

I tried this topic a few weeks ago in the non-builders section. Thought I try it again in the builders section.

I have a ten bolt rearend from a G-20 van and need a few opinions on whether this "free" differential is a good choice to have narrowed? It will be used on a SBC powered roadster of as yet undetermined design. I know if I was starting without a freeby, a Ford 9" is a better choice. Do the benefits of the Ford outweigh "free?" What about axels? When you get a diff narrowed do you usually go to after market axels? At some point in the future, I will probably go to aftermaket posi of some sort. Does that appreciably effect my choice now?
