Anything is possible, but make sure you are up to the task. There is a lot of custom fabrication and places to make errors if you are not on your game.

As far as a axle, I would use one from a...

Time to set CASTER. Caster is that thing that most people don't think about when messing with their front suspension. Caster essentially is the angle at which the front axle sits forward to allow...

They build old school VW busses in Brazil also, but the emissions are not up to par for the US market. They are virtually impossible to import as far as I know. The best way to get ahold of one is...
