Ford did make some 8 inch locker rearends, try looking for them in 1975-78 Mustang 2's with the 302 V8's. The 8 inch rearend is pretty tough but not as tough as a 9 so unless you have over 300 rear wheel HP I wouldn't go through the hassle of changing to a 9. BTW the 70's carriers are stronger than any of the 60's 8 inch carriers. If you cannot find a Ford Locker, there is alway Auburn, Power Trax and Currie that makes lockers for the 8 inch rearend.
