It seems to me that on a 9" the axle standoff that all of the popular brake kits use is 2 1/2". Axle stand off is the distance the axle sticks out of the housing. So if you add 5" to your width that gets you close. Maybe someone else can tell you if 8 and 9 inches are the same in this respect. Good luck.
