Suspension for 53 Chevy truck

I have a 53 Chevy 1/2 ton truck. The engine is a 94 LT1 with a 4L60E and disc posi out of a 94 Impala cop car. I have looked into using a Walton Fabrication leaf spring kit and a Chassis Engineering kit. Both seem comparable. Is there anything better some one has used?

If the 94 cop car has a 7.5" rear I wouldn't waist any money on the spring conversion. They're not very strong. May be better to buy an S10 P'up 8.5" rear & swap the disc brake setup from the cop car rear.
