66 truck , 87 sub swap

I sent F&J a message but thought i would see if any others had any says also. I have a 66 chevy truck and found a 87 suburban can i use the front upper and lower arms etc off this to put under the 66 and also use the master cylinder including booster. Possibly the power steering setup also? Thanks in advance.

Everything you need to upgrade the brakes and the steering are there.
But, as one poster had mentioned---check the frame horn closely for cracks,
Steal all the steering links too. Shorten steering shaft.

The portion of the frame that extends past the front crossmember.

The steering box is attatched to to the 'horn'
Bumper and core support are attatched to the 'horns'
