I'd check your local junk yard for Ford Econoline vans. Thats what a lot of people used back in the day.

MAS (Minnesota Auto Specialties?) regularly advertises in the popular Rod rags. They offer several types of straight (tubing) axles. I have used the 4" drop with Chevy spindles. Very stout, well made.

In the late '60's I put a CAE tube axle in my '65 GTO, they were built super tough. CAE used to be a big part of sprint car racing, you could order any width.

I did a quick search for them and can't find anything, they may have gone the way of many of the old manufacturers; maybe some of the roundy guys here know something about them.
