That's an easy one. The simplest for the front is to unbolt the entire front suspension crossmember from your frame rails and get a complete one from any 73-87 Chevy 1/2 ton. Bolts right in and then you have all the options that come with those trucks. Should be really cheap to get that setup, probably a pick and pull yard. Of course the 71/72 truck spindles will work on your existing control arms too.

 

The rear is a little more difficult. Simplest is a kit from SSBC or equivalent. I put a 78 Cadillac Seville setup on the back of my 69 but it wasn't a 100% bolt in. They do work but aren't the most common cars to find either. I have toyed with the idea of the 94-96 9C1/Impala SS rear setup. They are 5X5 as well but the studs are smaller and who knows about the brackets. Hope that helps.
