Rear axle suspension advice?

I have a 36 chevy truck with a small block,auto, and a speedway suicide axle/spring with radius rods up front.

i am debating on what to do for the rear. i thought of maybe an older set of nostalgic ladder bars w/ coil overs?

i thought of a single spring over axle set up, but i am nervous that it will handle for *****?

any advice?

I have a '36 p/u. previous owner installed complete coil spring rear from '65 Chevelle. It has the stock arms, & he fabbed up some brackets for them to bolt to the original frame. The only thing I had to rework, was to notch the frame for shock clearance. I'd send a pic, but it's buried under too many "can't live without" parts
