Let me explain my position......The car belongs to a friend & he is asking me what options are available & what do I recommend?

He has limited knowledge about car suspension & want advice. Because of his limited skills (I will do the welding) I thought the Fatmans stub frame would be easier to set-up. He came to me asking about a frame swap, but intially I told him it's usually better to modify the stock frame. I am now wondering if it might turn out easier for him to do a frame swap, the La Salle has a 120" wheelbase. The 50-80's Impalla frame have a 119", but I think the track would be too wide.
It looks like a Camaro front clip might be the way to go, however I was looking for a easier out(my labor will be free).

I'd appreciate any further discussion.
