Yes those three kits will work well together. Be sure to specify cross steering on the steering and brake kit since you are using a Vega steering box.

We do offer a complete hub to hub independent front suspension for your vehicle if you would be interested in something more modern with better handling. You might look at our compete hub to hub mustang 2 suspension kits such as our part number 91034100 or our 91034202. We do not currently offer an i-beam replacement axle kit for 35 to 40 Fords at this time. If you have questions about going to an independent suspension please do not hesitate in contacting us. We have all of the parts needed to do this in stock and ready to ship.

Speedway Motors part number 91639506. The steering and brake kit that would be best with that axle kit would be part number 9133948, which comes with the Ford spindles, kingpins, 11" brake kit, and tie rod bar.
