New guy here. I currently working on a 1967 GMc P30 GMC Value Van. All aluminum body that's in pretty decent shape. I'm trying to build this so I can take it out on road trips and not get beat to death. I'm planning on ditching the rear axle and leafs and install a set that is not as stiff. Now the big question is the front end. It has leads with solid axle. All manual drum breaks and steering pretty sloppy. I'm wondering if C20 front crossmember and a-arms were would fit without alot of modification. Thanks in advance.

Likely it already has the suspension it needs. Reducing suspension capacity on a truck is usually a mistake in my opinion.
If you want a smaller truck hunt for a smaller truck.
