The only change I had to make to the front suspension was to use Chevelle steering arms which are shorter, and a bit higher, to clear the inner edge of the rim. Yes, I know the Chevelle is front steer, but you can reverse them for rear steer.
Didn't reversing the steering arms seriously screw up the ackerman angle?
