Triangulated four bar?-Lengths?

We are beginning work on a 1937 Dodge coupe. We will be installing a Mustang II front suspension with tubular a arms and coil over shocks, combined with a mid-80s Thunderbird power rack. Outback. I have purchased a mid-90s 8.8 inch rear end out of a four-wheel drive Ford Ranger, from my research, it should be a perfect fit. I have decided to go with a triangulated four bar rear suspensions with coil overs. My question is, what is the correct degree that the upper bars should be in relation to the lower bars. I'm also trying to figure out what the length of the upper and lower bars should be. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

37 Dodge

Hi my name is Charlie and live in CA. I too am starting to work on a 37 Dodge coupe. I have the body off of it and have removed the front end and rear end.I have installed IFS from Fat mans and I am looking into a four bar coil over suspension. I don't want to spend a ton of money on it. let me know how yours is coming along.
