Make hangers for the leaves and the shackles. Splice the waggy driveshafts into the raider driveshafts. Mount shocks. Adapt brake lines. Drill out the mitsu pitman arm for waggy tierod end.

You better do some research.

I did one, it's a pretty straight forward swap. there are some pictures on 4x4 wire of Landraiders and Lordtrunks SAS's both are pretty similar budget builds too like you're planning.

My wife too. I have shipped parts to friends houses in the past so she doesn't know I'm spending money on the truck.

No matter what your planned budget, it will cost more than you think, and it will take longer than you think. Now get to it, and post some pics of ifs parts all over the garage floor.
