I want to start collecting parts.Saw some V6 front non A/C springs listed in Craigslist for $50 for the pair.
reinforce the rear link crossmember,
adjustable upper arms
maybe add lenth to the lower links mounts to change the mounting points,
guessing you'll have a cage or at least a 10pnt roll bar..
if not,cage, add boxing members to the frame ends, as both ends of frame are open and not connected to each other..
add g/p body braces,
you want nose up, so sbc or lsx
motor plates will help frame strenth..
some have added a crossmember where the frame kicks up in front of rear tire..
box the center unless running a roll bar/cage
