Triangulated 4 Bar ???

I just removed the front clip and rear end out of my 81 Malibu donor car. Im putting all this stuff in a 50 GMC. My question is this rear end ,it's a 10 bolt ,but it has the stock mounts on it that look like a tri 4 bar setup.. How hard would it be to make my own bars and fab this up ? I want to bag it also . Has anyone done this or will it work?? Thanks Jim....

Jim,

I believe that would work quite well. If you have the donor car you should still have the trailing arms etc which you can probably use as well (may want new bushings). Here is a shot of a 9" Ford adapted to a Malibu triangulated set up along with air bags. It works well - and uses all stock parts (except for the mounting brackets).
