The 8.8 is a good axle as "fast68" suggested. They are a dime or dozen at pull-a-part coming on everything from Crown Vics and Mustangs on up to the pickups. If you know how to weld and have a pneumatic die grinder you can probably find one close enough width wise to fit your purpose. If your looking for cheap I think it's a good route to go. The strength of the axles can usually be determined by their spline count. Fox body Mustangs came with 4 lug 28 spline axles. Moser makes them in 28, 31, 35 and I'm sure other sizes in 4 and 5 lug configuration. It's pretty close to impossible to snap a 35 spline axle on the street with radials unless they're 2 feet wide.

Ford 9" got to be one of the most cost effective swaps in the history of rodding. There everywhere and cheap.
