Post C5 Vette suspension into a fox body Mustang

Has anybody done this yet? My original idea was to do a full custom independent suspension front and rear, but the guy at the racecar chassis shop suggested swapping in a Vette suspension instead since it would likely be cheaper. I've done some searching online, but I haven't found much information on what is entailed in this transplant. Is the suspension on a subframe type setup so I can just remove the whole thing and weld it into the Mustang chassis? Last question, do you think there would be a better independent suspension that I could transplant into the Stang? Links and information are very appreciated. Or suggest some better search criteria. Thanks.

Beau

Cool

Are you looking for better handling or one up on the other cars? You might give Wolfe Racecraft in Arlington TX a call, I think they have a web page as well., if it works on a mustang these guys have done it from pro touring to the worlds fastest mustang on 9" tires,
