You just named all the ideas.

Search for axles and you will get a lot of info. Hundreds of threads. You could always swap in an 8.8 as well.

I agree about doing the 8.8 swap. Think about it for a second. The 8.8 is STILL in production, the aftermarket knows this, the Mustang/ Jeep crowd use it for everything so the parts availability is crazy compared to the 7.5. ( yeah, it is still being built, BUT, it has NOWHERE the support of the 8.8) Lok at it from another way, also: Break a 'shaft in the 8.8, simply go to a wreckingyard and call it a day. Pop a 7.5", well, they are out there, but, they can be harder to find, since their usage is alot lower.
