I like the idea of putting the Seville front clip, if it was done right. Besides the camaro, what subframe will offer the best fit and durability. A buddy used the mustang II kit, but he says it is too light for the truck. Also on those kits, when you need rotors or other parts, do you have to get specialty parts?
What does your buddy mean by "too light"? As in not designed for the heavier vehicles? There are manufacturers that use heavy duty arms, crossmembers, ball joints, brakes etc specifically for the heavier pickups when using MII spindle based kits. Most of the replacement parts are available over the counter.
