    In response to wagonman100

As the others have said, one change will force another. I was told some time ago that you need to remove or modify the stock tank if you were to change to a 9" rear in any wagon, dont know if it is myth or fact but others here may have done that conversion. Another option is to use a 10 or 12 bolt, but dont know how much clearance you have with those rear ends - again, others here may be able to help on that one.

I have removed the tank and spare wheel well in my 57 Nomad (with early Corvette rear) and I have widened a sedan tank by about 7". Depending on how you want to detail the undercarriage - you can get a custom made tank in stainlees or aluminium.
