confused Converting 9" rear end

Hey maybe someone out there can steer me in the right direction. I just a 9" rear end from a 1970 F-250. It has 8 lug hubs. I want to covert it for my 69 Galaxie. Who makes something to convert this to a 5 lug? I already bulit a 429 for it and had the C6 redone makes lots of power. Putting 541 hp/ 602ft lbs of torque to the ground, only the stock rear end is not going to handle it for long.

I expect you will need brakes and axles in the pattern you need , might be worth checking the wreckers ?

Re: Converting 9" rear end

Yes, I figured I would get either Moser, Strange, or Currie axles, & a new third member as well as the brakes with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt circle. If it's the same price I will say to hell with this and buy a whole new rear end. I really don't like using boneyard parts.
