77-79 Versailles projects

I have two Versailles project cars that I want leave the appearance stock (ex. for wheels and tires) but I am planning on modifying the engines ('77 = 351W '79 = 302) and the suspension. I think I have a very good idea for the build on these engines but I am struggling with the suspension mods. I want to make the cars handle well on the street and an occasional outing on a road course. I am not a suspension engineer or anything like it so I have been looking at vendors such as Hotchkiss and Global West kits with tubular control arms, springs...etc. Their catalogs don't list parts for the Versailles but they do for the Maverick, 70-73 Mustang, Torino...etc. Since these cars shared the same architecture I assume that steering and suspension components would interchange. How do I find out what the differences are?
Thanks in advance for your help.
