or could i get suspension parts for the front end like to get rid of the king pens. not sure where to start
Usually, the first couple of frame swaps or clip swaps that a guy tries to do, end up behind the shed, left to rust in peace. I had to do half a dozen of 'em before I produced anything that worked better than stock.

I would advise you to find a weld-in or bolt-in independent front suspension system and keep the stock frame intact.
