Do some measuring and compare the wheelbase and track widths of your Cloud to a '77 to '96 "B" body Impala, Caprice, Parisienne, Coupe Deville, Station Wagons, etc. If they are comparable it would be worth looking into swapping the entire chassis. Parts are cheap and plentiful and lots of performance stuff is available also...
I would consider the Corvette suspension viable though... Even though the Corvette doesn't weigh as much as the Cloud the suspension is designed to handle considerable cornering loads. It may be on the edge but it would work fine in my opinion...
