Re: coil-sprung zuks???????
part time - I think Ford trucks are the 'usual' donors for spring, spring towers, etc - the ford pices are bolted/riveted onto their frames, so you just drill them off, then re-mount them wherever is suitable. Front radius arms are probably easiest to mount using the 'fixed' mounts from a shackle reversal kit, and rear lower arms can go into the existing rear fixed mounts. the rear Y link ( upper wishbone) would then mount to the crossmember above the fixed eyes , adn requires welding a pivot to teh top of the axle housing. Panhard on the front ??? maybe to the exsisting bump stop mounts, just outside the frame.
the reality is, the mount points will vary greatly, depending on how long your locating links are, how much travel you want to achieve, and what axles you're planning to use.
