I was thinking about doing the same with a 53 olds I had but I found NOS parts to fix it,I was thinking about using 56 upper controll arms and getting the top shock mount from the donor car. I think the 55/6 A arm would bolt to the inner 2 bolts that the 53 parts bolted to but a spacer would be needed in between the A arm and frame or the part cut off the donor chasiss,the top shock mount then could be welded to the frame after some grinding for the shock to come up through the frame. The 53 lower controll arms could be drilled to mount the 55/6 shocks or the 55/6 lower controll arms could be used,I parted a 56 88 to get the parts to do this swap on my 53 but NOS upper A arms were found and I never done it.
