Aftermarket engine crossmember?

Iím weighing out options for the front end on our Ď64, and I keep going in circles. The goals are: lower it (around 5Ē), disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and is like tubular control arms for alignment adjustability (and geometry). I was leaning towards the TCI pro touring IIFS, or the No Limit Wide Ride IFS, but both are a chunk of change at once. Itís ok from an overall budget perspective, but I sold this project to my wife as ďa little alongĒ. Itís going to be a daily driver for my 9 year old when he gets to that point. Itís a father/son project until then.

That being said, Iím looking at options to spread the cost over some time. I could use Performance Online for the parts, and thatís all doable while meeting the goals, but Iíve never seen an aftermarket crossmember with improved clearance over stock. The IFS kits that I mentioned above both include a new crossmember with much better clearance. Does anyone have a source for just the crossmember? If so, then piecing it together may be the way to go. If not, Iíll have to shift my attention to another part of the truck for a bit. Just dropped $3k on an LY6 and 6L90E, so the boss lady has requested that I slow the spending for a bit. Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
