Axle... (again)

I know I have posted many of these...
Wondering what tools I need to do an axle swap (Ford 8.8) I was going to get it soon and then I was going to put it in the backyard on jack stands and do some work, like cut the old brackets off and such and switch the gears until I have enough for the front gears too.
Wanting to know what tools and everything. I can't wait to get started on it.
Thanks
Mike

Basically what I wanted...
How do I figure out the measurements and such? And well yes, the e-brake, where would I find one? And some cheap/good brackets... I know they are around 200-300$

Don't forget a magnetic angle finder.

How do I use those? I've seen people with angle finders and when they put the axle on the ground... their springs arch... How/Why? How do I avoid that?
