For an IFS, your looking at $2k for the suspension + installation is going to run at least a grand or so, add in the tweaks to get it good and drivable again and you could be out $5k or better.
I've driven both and I know I prefer IFS, so as far as I'm concerned, it needs the work.
With all due respect, I'm not sure I understand your logic. Why do so many people add IFS to old hot rods if it's not worth doing? $5k is doable to have it done. I'd prefer to do it myself though.
