If you plan to use stock with fenders you will have to shorten the driveshafts and controllarms, which sounds more difficult than it actually is, provided you have access to a lathe, if nit you should have some shorter shafts fabricated. the controllarms is just a question of cutting and welding. the shafts are a little more tricky

send me a mail and i can send a how-to sketch, it requires a lathe, a press and a welder

Correctamundo....what "duece_454" said. I just shortened mine to 50" over the wheel flanges for a street-legal sprint car. Everything he said is what I did...it wasn't difficult. I had the added challenge of the pinion being 1" off center. I had to space all the right-side pivot points 2" out to get the pinion in the center. Then I took 6 3/4" out of each side.
