Anyone ever ran a Street-Stock Metric Chassis?

I am building one and have always ran leaf spring cars.

Do these cars make good Street-Stocks?

Would locating the rear coil springs behind and half way of the axel tube be better than running the springs on top of the rear axel tube?

I am building the car without the original stock floor pan.

I am leaving the original rear frame rails and trailing arms but intend installing a 9" Ford floater rear-end with metric rearend brackets.

I will also be replacing the original upper A-Arms with none-adjustable tubular after-market A-Arms.

I will be setting the engine back to #1 spark plug inline with the upper balljoint.I will also notch the frame crossmember for fuel pump clearance.

We are also allowed to run wedge-bolts in the front and rear of the metric chassis.

Any advice will be deeply appreciated.

Thanks Steven.
