Why do you want to swap the front crossmembers? You are actually going backwards as far as good geometry goes depending on how you are planning on setting it up.

my first intent was to keep the stock set up, as I stripped the truck down I found the the truck had been hit HARD. the frame rails are quite tweeked as is the steering linkage. on top of that I have the front end off the caprice sitting out back with 11" disk brakes. I would like to have better brakes anyway. as far as my "set up" goes the truck has been retired as a hauler. I have other vehicles to use for pick up type stuff. I just wanna build a x-tra low super useless truck.
