Ford 9" questions

Im considering replacing my 10 bolt on my custom hot rod truck with a ford 9". Ill be running a 400rwhp ls1 and the 10 bolt is a stock non-posi unit. Probably a good idea to replace it right?

Ive got a couple 9" rears laying around that should work or i can find more. Ill need a posi unit, probably different gearing and a disk brake kit. Can someone point me in the right direction for these parts? Maybe a general price range i should expect to pay?

What about changing the lug pattern to 5 lug chevy?

Id imagine my stock driveshaft wont work with the ford 9" either..where can i get a new one?

thanks alot
oh here is a picture of it...
no its not a "low-rider" ...i think of it as a street rod stuck in a trucks body

To change a wheel bolt pattern you either ;

get new axles & rotors,

re-drill the axles and disc rotors

use wheel adapters to change the bolt pattern.

In my opinion adapters are unsafe
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
