1980 Chevelle front clip on a 51 Ford F1

I had a 1980 Chevelle font clip installed on my truck 12 years ago. Since I brought it home, it has sat and I have not touched it (I know I ought to be ashamed and I am).

I would like to upgrade all the parts on it and lower the front end as well.

I have heard that S-10 spindles will work great on these front ends. Does anyone have any info on this?

If it's an 80 Malibu front end, S10 spindles will bolt right on.

Up through 93 at least. the bag kit may or may not fit, the upper A frame is different, but the lower is the same. Spring pocket in the frame may not be the same.
