Default 90 ranger drag truck

I'm building a drag truck. I'm using a 1990 ford ranger. I'm putting a big block 460, with c6 transmission, and a 4 link for the back suspension. Problem I'm having is the front suspension. I've read that you can use rear coil over brackets, and mount the coil over where the old springs were. Just trying to see if anyone has tried this, and if so, how well it worked?
