aosborn Look into a 1986 to 1988 Corvette front suspension. They can be had for a reasonable cost and work very well.

murrsue Check this out. Biggest disadvantage is the width is a little wider and you need to use offset wheels like from the donor Crown Vic or a newer Mustang. There are several diyers that have documented this swap on line.

Jag it

I pulled a couple Jag XJ6 front suspensions for $ 100, rears also were $100, Go full jag. You will want the jag brake pedal & M cyl and steering parts There are a lot of jag ed truckes in Aust, New Z , and the UK, also picts on the Hamb or classic truck sites A jag front will drop your front 3 or 4 inches, everything except the upper shock mounts is on the jag front crosmember , some years jags didn't have a brake line 4 yau just lines. Make sure the rotors are good, the rears are a pain to replace. Do a search her on HR , jaguar suspension, lots of posts, pro's and cons, etc. Ford Truck Enthusiasts site has lots of picts and how to into a 48 truck , similar to what you would have to do

Not sure if your model year is valid, but the late model Crown Vic front suspension crossmember and all outboard parts literally bolt into early 70's F-100's. You might look around on some of the Ford Truck boards or google it...
