g body suspension

I have a 1983 buick regal that is all bone stock except for the chevy 350 and th350 trans. My car has about 430 hp but is a very rough ride. I am going to be doing some major upgrades this tax season. Including all new springs, a arms, rearend ect..... does anybody know if anything to do with the front suspension for this car is compatible with other body styles with little to no modifications? For example it will cost me almost 2,000 for the front tubular a arm set up that I want but the same company makes a set about 600 dollars cheaper for an a body. Not positive this would actually work. Just an example. I would greatly appreciate any insight.

The G body frame is very popular in the circle track world as an IMCA modified frame. Check speedway motors or other circle track chassis parts people for suspension. Beware though they offer shortened or lenghened A arms. Get the stock size.
As to cost difference, those that sell parts for street cars probably have to carry liability insurance against a properly installed part failing on the street and killing someone. As an ''off road'' part, the liability insurance may not be needed for them because you have the liability of fabricating a safe chassis.
