1928 chevy

I am building a 28 Chevy 2 door sedan, I have just started to work on the frame so I can put my V-8 in it. I thought I could use a S-10 frame like I did with my 41 but the A frames are in the way for the fenders, what type of suspension would work the best for the front? and what would be best for the rear as I want to have the body flush with the rear frame. I have done many searches but can only find frame suspension for Fords EEK . Any help would be appreciated.

1928 on S-10 frame

I have a friend who put "humps" on his fenders in order to use a late model frame. (Isuzu). It sucks. AS you can tell by my ID that I've tried the S-10 frame switch. It's easier going with the original or an aftermarket frame. The Chevy frames come up on eBay occasionally. I have a friend who is rodding a 29 Chevy Sedan and she got a nice stock frame on eBay for a song. Course it was in Florida.
Did the 41 sit high?

I have an S-10 frame professionally shortened to 112 inches if someone wants it for 150 bucks, tires, wheels, gas tank, complete frame, (did have a SBC 350 mounted in it.) NO JOKE. Northern KY area.

It worked perfect for the 41 I welded the front stub in the original frame it all measured perfectly I would recommend anyone putting a 41-48 chevy together to try it they will like it. But it don't work worth a darn on my 28.

I have several original frames for my 28 but I am looking for a way to modify it for my v8 what parts do I need? or do I try to build the whole thing new?
