Some additional information is needed. Are you going to run fenders? If not to put that type of suspension on an A frame
you will have to cut the frame off at the front of the front cross member. thus removing the frame horns.
do you want the spring behind the axel? tie rod behind or in front of the axel? what steering box are you going to use? what engine/trans ?
Lots of questions
good luck on your project. how about some pictures?

Most of these set ups consist of a spring pearch, spring, front axel with assicoated hardware for brakes and stability. You can buy a complete set up less the pearch from resources such as speedway motors. Look there, the front of the frame will require a frame section or modification of a cross member to be welded at the front or end of the frame. That pretty much sums it up.

Suicide Front End simply means the first point of contact in a head on crash, that takes out the front suspension.
