Have a 1936 Buick Special I would like to modernize with upgraded suspension i.e. frame swap, front clip, after-market chassis etc.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

jaguar suspension from 1987 and older jags. independent front and rear suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, et etc. My car cruises comfortable at 90 mph. Requires work but much easier than a frame swap. Uses a chevy lug pattern and looks completely original on outside. I see people do the camaro front clips, but these still have steering boxes and drive like cars from the 70's! don't do all that work without rack and pinion steering. Short of a $12,000 custom frame from Art Morrison, this is as good as you will get.

36 suspension

Thanks Jacob for the Jag suspension recommendation. I have a Jag rear set-up I can use - just need the front.
