It took me a few moments. You are going to stay with coils rather than leafs? Good diagrams are available from a FORD dealer off the CDP (parts computer). If you can find a good parts man, he should be able to let you look through the different setups over the years. I have a FORD TSB here that details cutting rivets and how to replace with proper Grade 8 hardware. You don't want to be cutting/fabbing against the rails. I would try and find all of the necessary brackets/bars off a donor rather than fabbing.
