Early '40's Plymouth independent suspension - any good?

I have a 1940 plymouth 4 door sedan, that is in good condition. I'm planning a "resto-rod" rebuild of this car. Basically, I want to upgrade the driveline and suspension / brakes. The engine will probably be a small block Chevy.

I'm having a hard time determining what to do with the front suspension. I've read in a couple places that these early Plymouth independent front ends are actually pretty good if they are rebuilt and the brakes and shocks are upgraded.

I've never driven one with upgraded brakes / shocks, so I was hoping someone could provide some feedback.

I'm just looking to build an occasional family cruiser. Keep in mind, I'm not taking this thing out on a road course.

Thanks for any input.
