Spindles vs I-beams

I've got a 1997 Ranger with a 2.3L 5spd. stock setup. I have a Ford 289ci. small block that I am going to put in it's place. I am wanting to get rid of the I-beams on the front. Is it possible to swap the front suspension with a newer spindle type setup? I am planning on doing some fabrication to the frame, while I have it apart, so that one day i can put a solid axle under the front and lift it up JUST A LITTLE.
