66 Suspension?

I am about to start restoring my 1966 Mustang. It currently has a inline 6 in it and I plan on putting a 351 Cleveland in it. Since it has the I6 it has the 4 bolt axles so I need to upgrade to the 5 bolt. But I am completely lost when it comes to suspension and the components. I found this kit and was just wondering if its good for the price or if i need to look for something else. Mustangs Plus*::* --Kits-- *::*Suspension Kits*::*Grab-A-TrakĀ® Spring and Handling Kits*::*1965-66 Grab-A-TrakĀ® Spring and Handling Kit . I need some inputs about what suspension would be best for my mustang.

That kit looks nice. Polyurethane bushings do tend to squeak though if you are anal about a super quiet ride. You can find front spindle kits to upgrade to 5-lug in the front online if you search around. To upgrade the rear axles to 5-lug, I'd probably just go ahead and throw a 9" rear under there to handle the power of the 351c. Depending on the overall width of the rearend, you could even upgrade to a 8.8 out of a newer Mustang or Explorer and get rear disc brakes. Depending on the size of your rims, you can even upgrade to 13" '03 Cobra brakes in the front from Mustang Steve: cobrabrakes Also, if you want a little bit of a rake in the front, you can leave the 6-cylinder front springs in the car and the extra weight of the 8-cylinder motor will push it down a little bit.
