55 Chieftain front suspension help!

I have been reading post from the archives via the search function for hours...nay days, and there seems to be quite a bit of differing views on converting to the MII front suspension!
Is the 55 Pontiac too heavy for an aftemarket Mustang II front end? Some say yes, some say no! I will be pulling the stock V8 and putting in a 350ci SBC and 200-4R. I want disks up front and there appears to be a complete lack of conversion parts for brakes on these vehicles....plus, I figured that even if there was a brake kit, by the time I payed for that, and overhauled the front suspension/steering, I would be amost to a new MII kit ($$ wise).
So, if a MII would be a good fit, then any recommendations on which vendor would be best?
Thanks,
Tim
