40 Chev front and rear suspension swap

I am thinking that I would like to use Jag front and rear in the 1940 special deluxe Chevy (which will also get a 350 and 200 4R). Has anyone here fitted these components to a 40 (or similar) Chev? Any tips, tricks or things to be aware of with this swap?

I have read through all the archive posts on the Jag stuff and have picked up on some of the pros and cons of the swap (as much as has been posted), but nothing specific to this application.

Specifically, how are the width dimensions vis-a-vis the Jag stuff and the Chevy frame and fender/wheel clearances?

Thanks,
Tim
