There's several topics on this in the archives . 9" or strange d60 . Depends on power out put . But if your just wanting to get a better upgrade the 9 " . The 12 bolt has tunnel issues especially if its been lowered . Do a search and that will get you more info .
im just looking for a direct replacement. in my previous post i meant i want to do it WITHOUT fabrication and custom work. i messed up. what will be a option besides another ten bolt if possible....

they make 9 inch rears that are mostly just bolt in and bolt on your brakes and go. but its pricey
MWC fab 9" was a complete bolt in.
Strange and Moser both make a bolt in 12 bolt and Dana 60 for 3rd and 4th gens. Moser also sells a 9" as does MWC. There are no real clearance issues on a 12 bolt. Some of the aftermarket arms are the clearance they can be an issue even on a 10 Dolt...
