Questions about 4-link suspension

I'm going to install 4-link in my 28 Nash coupe, but have a few questions. How long should the bars be, how far apart ( top and bottom bars ), size of tube to use, mounting location on the diff, and what would be the best, and cheapest type of bushings to use. Also I am planning to use a leaf spring sideways to save as much space as possible, and to get it really low. Is this a good idea or not. Also would i need a sway bar for this aplication?

As the moderator here, I would like to WELCOME YOU here...

If you are going to run a leaf spring across the only need two lower bars to help keep the rear end in position. This was/is a common practice in early V8 Ford hot rods. The longer, the better the ride ( to a point ) . I suggest you look at a stock 35 to 40 Ford rear suspension....for ideas.
