stay with springs or go ladder bar?

I have a '79 T/A that I've been working on for a while and I can't decide to stick with the leaf springs or go and put a full ladder rear in. Right now I'm running a sbc 400 with a B&M 250 blower pushing 500+HP to the ground. I've rebuilt the front end, put Comp. Engineering boxed SFCs and rear rails in, DS loop, ford 9" rear, and drag shocks in. I'm thinking about replacing the tank with a fuel cell, mildly tubbing the rear and converting over to a ladder bar rear with coil-overs but I'm not sure how streetable it will be. I use the car mainly at the track but I still love driving it around town and on the highway. It won't be a dificult or costly chage over as I already have the frame rails in. Any thoughts?
