IFS to SFA

I have a 96 Z71 that has a IFS lift from fabtech 6" suspension and im thinking about taking that out and doing a SFA converstion using the ORD bolt in kit. If i do end up doing this i am using D44 hp driverside drop and a D60 rear. My question is what would be the best spring to use in the front to give me my 6" back? Im having trouble finding lower control arms, torsion bars, and torsion xmember hints the reason why I am thinking of doing the SFA converstion. Any advice [or if you have those parts drop me a pm] would be very helpful..

where can I get that warranty? The dealership usually only gives warranties if you've used synthetic blinker fluid

I dont even kno what a torsion bar is or where to sit when im driving lol... But I got 2 torsion bars and passenger side lower control arm and the torsion x member from a local junk yard for $60 today so the truck will be back to sitting normal within a few days.. Just dont have the energy or a garage to work on it in so im using flood lights to see

I was saying if i couldnt find the parts for the ifs i was goin to straight axle the truck but i found the parts that i was looking for so im not straight axling now... I have the axles under my blazer if I wanted a sfa under the Z71 they are D44 hp with 4.10s and the rear is a D60 welded with 4.10s out of a 78 F250... I kno what im doing I was just wanting suggestions on either sfa it or keep the ifs but no need for that now bc i have ifs put back together... Just have to do some adjusting here and there still on the truck since it was hit but nothing that should take me to long of a time to do... Now is everyone on the same track? I sure do hope so.
