Repeat of lost thread, what front suspension is this?

The following is the front end in a 59 ford truck. However it is not original, so I am trying to figure out what front end it is. It is probably out of a gm. At least the steering column is a gm. So I figure it is some sort of gm product. How do I tell if they put it in there right. Lots of stuff is done kind of half assed on this truck, but if the front end is in there ok it may be worth working with.

53" from horn to horn on the metric stuff. 56" on the SAE stuff.


That looks nothing like a metric or SAE frame horns.

Looks like a "Halloween" suspension. It screams "Trick or Treat" and strong on the "Trick" side. Otherwords, scares the heck out of me!! I would not trust it sitting on a trailer, much less driving it.
