cadillac rear axle?

hi!

im wondering if the Cadillac rear axle on my 1964 has any
interchangeble (spelling?) parts with any other GM axle?

Id like to have a differential installed, but the ones for Cad.
are hard to find.

Does anybody now how strong these axles are?
I have 340 hp/480 ft.lbs now, and the engine im planning
to build have around 600hp/700 ft.lbs ...
How long will my rear end stay in one piece?

Whats the replacement axle? Ford 9" ?

I would also like to know if anyone has changed the front drum
brakes to disc brakes? Do newer Cad. brakes fit in some way?

I already have a vacuum servo made for disc brakes, so that
wont cause any trouble ... i realise (spelling?) that i need some
kind of valve to direct more "power" to the front wheels ..

thanks in advance!
