As a Moderator here ... I want to be the first to WELCOME you here. Unfortunately ... the 49 to 53 Fords do not accept a Mustang II IFS very well. They were already independent front suspension and the frame does not adapt well. There are front stubs being made to remedy this. A GM clip is too wide IMHO ...

Click on this ...

As a Moderator here, I try NOT to recommend specific brands ... read the link and make up your mind ...

Y not just upgrade the stock front end with disc brakes? adapt a power rack and pinion into the mix ( keeping the original front end, just taking out the center link ect... ), you'll have good results with little trouble
