First I do not know how your suspension compares to the Chevy. There are lots of info out there for them. I would think that the ideas about conversions would be similar.
My conclusion about MII front ends is that if you retain the factory style strut rod that the suspension design is good. Aftermarket kits are available front or rear steer. Heavier constructed parts might be to your advantage since your car is heavier than a MII.
