I guess you have four ways to go. You could get a dropped I beam/tube axle and add disc brakes and a Vega style steering to it. You could go with a Nova/Camaro/Firebird front sub frame with disc brakes and its steering. You could use a complete S10 frame and swap the body on to it. Or you could use an aftermarket front cross member and MII components including rack and pinion steering. It all depends on your budget and your welding and fabrication skills. The dropped axle would be a bolt in. The Nova sub frame requires welding and fabrication skills. The S10 frame would require welding and lots of fabrication to mount your body/etc. on it. The MII would require some welding although there may be a bolt on unit out there. Give us some more details and we can offer more advice.

I have seen too many butchered up NFC clip jobs on this series Fords and have not talked with any one that is super pleased with them, I have not heard any one complain about their Mustang II fronts so would go that direction, personally. I have lots of miles with these as well as a reworked I beam sit up. Again, the M II wins out there in my book. Guess M II front ends are the SBC of front suspensions. Work great and "every one has them" (drivers and vendors).
