I would like to find this original paint, 21 window that I sold years ago for $15k. I'd like to buy it back for that and then put it up for sale now, please.

My rear suspension is same as yours. I narrowed my trail arms by 1-9/16" and used short-side axles from an automatic Type III. You can buy narrowed trail arms, but I'm not sure what the specs are ...
