There's a guy selling Explorer axles on E-Bay and he says they're 59 1/2" wheel to wheel and the axle mounting pads are on 39" centers.

I attached a pdf of some info that should answer your questions on what is available. It was really handy when I was looking for my 8.8. I also looked up my notes from when I was measuring rear ends. My notes are showing 58.8" for a 95 exploder. Hope this helps.
