You have to be a little more specific.
The best as far as strength would be a Dana 60 or a GM 10.5 inch 14-bolt, but I assume you are thinking about some model of Chevy car?

The 8.5 inch 10-bolt axle would be the best choice, but will not fit all models of Chevy car, deviate either way and you compromise strength with the 7.5/7.625, or mucho-$$$ with the 12-bolt.
