You will need 2 pieces of 2 inch solid round bar cut to length fro the axles end bosses and a piece of 2 inch 1/4 wall structural tube to make an axle..I prefer a straight tube with no drop and mount it high enough in the chassis t get the ride height desired. Look at a sprint car for the design..I know hot rod guys like the drop but they are a PITA when setting up the tie rod and drag link on a dropped axle..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
