Rear suspension help? 1956 ford truck

I am looking for any information regarding putting a new complete leaf suspension kit under my truck that will utilize the existing holes in the frame..I do not want to have to drill holes.
Or does anyone know what rear leaf springs will work from other vehicles.?
I am putting in a 1996 mustang rear end.
Any suggestions welcomed..
