If you're going to go through the process of welding spring mounts to the frame, you might as well pick up an axle with a differential and use that without a driveshaft installed. 1986-1997 D60, or a 1999-2003 D50/D60 (front and rear) if you don't mind changing lug pattern. You can find leaf sprung superduty axles for less than $500 a set all day on craigslist.
That way when you decide (and you will) to switch to 4x4, it is one less thing to have to change over.
To me, trying to source/machine parts necessary to adapt 10-lug hubs to 8-lug wheels is going to more trouble than its worth.
Or, you can go the really cheap way and install a 3" body lift without modifying anything suspension related.
