9 to 8 speed cassette needs new free hub?

How can I tell if I need an 8 speed freehub, or if the one I have with the 9 will work?

The new cassette will have the same size outer cogs (11-32T).

Is Ben's Cycle a good company to deal with?

I don't know anything about them other than they have some very nice prices on components I am interested in.

If you are not into preserving the original brakes you could switch to sidepulls maybe, if the frame will take them.
