Question 71 Torino 302 -> 390

Hello all, I am planning on converting my Torino from a 302 to a 390, I know I need to upgrade the front suspension to handle such an additional engine weight, does anyone know if the front (and rear for this matter) suspension from a 1966 Ford Thunderbird fit in a 71 Torino sucessfully, how about a 66 thunderbird 9 inch rear-will it fit with not too many modifications? Lastly, is it just the cross member I have to change in order for the car to use a C6 instead of a C4?
