Ok, first off is its a very good year for the old fords unless you can find the 57 to 60 it is the 2nd best years imo, 2nd is you are able to make that a tank but it will not stand up to a caddy head to head let alone 2 of them, you are out weighed by roughly 800 to 1200 pounds in that ford but the biggest advantage you do have over the caddy's is speed and maneuverability. 3rd thing is even with changing out the front stub to a newer ford is you will be able to take hits and give them but i would still avoid nose to nose shots, stick with the wheel shots and angle shots on the front rails of the caddy, it is your best bet for crippling them along with your speed.
The truck springs are a good idea for the height specially if you can weld them in as well so they dont come out, definitely chain the humps as it will help the back roll but you dont need to notch the frame in the rear as it will normally right behind where you relocate the hangars to on the frame, make sure to tuck the trunk just in front of the hangars and it will roll perfect, Bumper shocks vary on what you have and what you are allowed to do with them.
Hope this helps answer your ?'s and then some.
