Smacked a curb now I need....

Snapped my axle clean off after hitting a curb, looks like the rear end housing might be damaged, have been looking into going all new, or going the junk yard route. Don't have tons of coin right now but also want to do it right. Just looking for some input, either find another mustang to yank it from, buy new, or do a nine inch swap. And what the nine inch swap would need to be done right.

The same thing happened to my car years ago. The original owners boyfriend (Now husband) slid the car into a curb and knocked the rear end out of the car.
The body shop installed a used rear end.
A 9 inch would be nice but it is going to be expensive and the only real advantage is the ability to swap in different gear ratio's, quickly, by having a few different "pumpkins" set up with the gears already installed.

Yeah mines just a daily driver that a play around with on the weekends. Luckily no body damage, I didn't have my seatbelt on, when I brought it around the last time for the 8 I straight came outta my seat. When I hit the curb I was half in the passenger seat over the console. I knew when I started coming out the seat it was a wrap. A lot of my buddies were saying go nine inch, they're bullet proof but I'm not puttin out no real horsepower. Just a stock ho 5.0 with a cool air intake and electric fans. Really nothing performance wise, do you know of any good places to find one? Been online checking different set ups out. Found used housings for a couple hundred, and full new set ups for 1800. I know I can get one from a junk yard but sometimes they're just as expensive depending on what your looking for and not always good condition. Appreciate you getting back to me

I've been having pretty good luck finding parts on Craigslist.
Hell, you might find a good deal on a nine inch for a Fox on there.
I'd try to search around local first because the shipping will be expensive for a rear end.
