Re your rear end. It is going to be a lot of extra work and money to change the whole rear end. Why not just change the gears?

I would tend to disagree. Even if the donor rear end is a 4-link being swapped to leafs, the cost of grinding off the coil mounts and welding on leaf perches will be less than the cost of setting up gears.

When I swap the 87 Towncar diff under my BII, the lower trailing arm mounts will make excellent traction bar mounts...
