Front end swap for a 50 willys wagon

There was a popular swap for the 46-64 2wheel drive jeeps years ago. Does anyone remember?? If not. I guess I could go with a bone yard mustang II. The after market units at $1800 and up are out of the question. The original front end is cross eliptical spring lower and control arms upper. I had thought of reversing the spring eyes and raising the control arm brackets the same amount, but this is almost as much work as a sub swap.
Anyone have any ideas??
The drive line will be a 4.3 Chev, T5, and Nova rear.
Thanks in advance

I do not remember the swap ...
If you do swap something in ... remember to keep the camber and caster in mind ...
