Generally 5 on 4.5", though pickups are usually 5 on 5". Either an axle change or a plug and redrill will give you that 4.5". If you are using Chevy wheels, then a plug and redrill to 5 on 4.75 will work just fine.

As far as which one - any of them that fits your particular car width wise and they range from ~57" to 65" flange to flange. The later, big bearing/Torino's are about as good as any - but wide. Here's about the best source I've found on that subject: http://www.maliburacing.com/ford_9_i..._nine_inch.htm

The 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern is quite common on the older fords..Pickups and older Fords have that pattern..Wheel choice is kinda limited on the 5 on 5 1/2 pattern tho..
What I am doing now is to find a housing and rear that came with 31 spline axles and have it narrowed to fit..I have ends installed that allow the disk brakes from the 95 and later Ford Explorer to be installed which gives a good e-brake system as well. this has been a proven deal for a lot of guys..

Now if youare breaking axles 35 and 40 spline axles can be installed in a Ford 9 inch..
