Explorer Rear- Use clip or go with a 4 Link?

I thought I would just do a rear clip so I could keep all the Explorer parts- shocks, sway bar, ect.
Well the shocks will be 7 inches into the trunk and using the explorer frame would kill off most of the trunk as it has a ladder frame.
My buddy wants just drop in a 4 Link- we can do that but I know Ford put much thought into making a 'System" for a vehicle with weight and height- I plan to keep the car high.

My car is 4000 Lbs and a unibody- A Russian ZIM
Thoughts on the Explorer - OR suggest another vehicle - OR the 4 Link....
