What chevy 10 bolt axles have 3" dia. tubes?

I am in the process of installing a T.C.I. rear 4-link coil-over set -up in my 1955 F100 frame. Their axle brackets are designed for a 3" axle. I was originally going with a "85" S-10 axle which has a 2 5/8" diameter. Now I need a 3" dia. axle, at least 55" between the backing plates, centered third member and a ratio around 3.0 or 3.50 for high way driving.
I will be installing a SBC 350 and 700r4.
I just thought of another question: How good are the original 1955 F100 axles? Strength is probably good, but I wonder about 70 mph driving for long distances? It is a Dana 44.
So.......What chevy 10 bolt axle can I use?
