A lot of fabrication, welding, measuring, & most importantly... leveling! Usually best left to a pro

Have to narrow the housing, & it has to be right(useing a special tool), have to replace all the sheetmetal from the back of the front seats to the tail light panel including tubs, you can re-use the leaf springs but it's easier to use a coil-over shock, all new frame rails & fuel system too. Here's a link to my web site, you can check out the work we did on my '66 drag car

You usually use a coil over set up. See Alston products in Ca. They had a nice one they built in a Mag. a few years ago. Lot of work and $$$ Gary

If you are going to the expense of narrowing and tubbing forget the leaf springs. Go to a coilover setup, using ladderbars or a 4-link.

Yes. You can re-use the springs but that in essence make it an antique. Best way to get out cheap is a ladder bar/coil over street set-up. This is about the cheapest place you'll find & still get some sort of quality, there are others
