BTW, that will be most likely my plan on going. Either that or dropping in a D60 front and a 14 bolt rear in. whichever I find a better deal on first. I want coils!

its not really all that hard:

perches, shock mounts, brake lines... and ujoints dont have to be changed out if you buy an 8.8 1310 flange yoke

Drivelines, Yokes, Carrier Bearings and Spacers, Etc. Ford 8.8 Flange to 1310 Yoke Adapter

i bought two, one is a spare... bolts right up to your 8.8 yoke.
