You might consider buying the later model D60, you can cut off the center section a bit more then I did and run the stock style c bushings. It is the 8x170mm bolt pattern so your limited in options for rear axles, but the sterling is a great rear end. It has disk brakes stock, its easy to find, cheap, 35 spline axles on ALL models, and only about 3/4" less clearance then a 9"!
The only drawback i've found in the later model axles is the bolt pattern gives you limited options for wheels (I'm just going to get some hummer beadlocks recentered with the 8x170 pattern). And the Unit bearings can be costly to replace, besides that, for the price you can't beat'm.
