I would be considering the 9" if you plan to do some work to the 302 or alot of strip work. There are kits available for them. A mate had a 400 chev c4 and a 9" and i am pretty sure he bought a mounting kit through rocket industries

One of my mates was doing up a V8 capri but he ended up selling it but he got a shortened chrysler diff maybe from a centura or something.But with the amount of work in shortening it i would go with either a 9inch or even just a 8inch borg warner shortened.
I had a V8 (mildly worked 308)2wd hilux with a shortened xd diff and lsd and it never broke.
