9 inch swap questions.

I picked up a big bearing 9 inch today. The seller said it had come off a Marc 2 or something. Anyways, it already has disc brakes on it. They are 5x4.5 lugs. I was wondering is it easier to swap this to 5x5.5 than trying to do discs on a bronco axle. I would prefer to keep it set up with discs.

You will have a few options, it the axle flange is big enough you could have it redrilled, spacer/adapters or different shafts.
How wide is the Marc 2 axle?

The axle is right around 63 inches wms, the front I'm using is 65. Figured it would be a good match.
