It's all about your fab skills. 8.8 needs the backets/ spring perches. Dana 60 will need same, stick out of the wheel wells a couple of inches on each side, and will need a different wheels. Drum size will require bigger than 15" rims.

You will also lose some ground clearance under the pumpkin with the 60. If you are not running larger that 35's and have a big V8 the 8.8 should serve you just fine.
