front suspension id

a customer brought in a 1940 ford, custom hot rod for an alignment,
he does not know what suspension parts are on this car, i am assuming it is a mustangii power steering rack, it needs outer tie rods, i found them in a moog part. we also need to see about specs for this car to align it properly. it does not look like any caster,camber adjustments are possable, the upper and lower control arms, are custom tubular with spring over shock suspension. any pointers about aligning will be appreciated.

An introductory post is recommended, and pictures will help tremendously.

There are M-II front clips and there are M-II based front clips. The problem is, most everything you get now days will be an aftermarket "based" clip and unless you know who's it is, the parts may not be readily available. Pix surely won't hurt, but may not necessarily help either...
