Welcome ,where are you from ? Shipping will help determine your best source as shipping heavy parts can get expensive .I would check Summit Racing for pricing and shipping to start .

I'd use a stock type 11" with stock spindles.

They're simple, effective, affordable, and parts are easy to get anywhere without hunting down a mix/match parts combination. They fit under 15" wheels, don't change your track width, and don't screw up any geometry.

Avoid any spindle with the steer-arm cast as one piece with the spindle. Stock were bolt-on steer arms, and all of the one piece designs I've seen screw up the steering geometry.

For brake booster size, it will depend on your valve cover clearance. With stock valve covers, 11" stock type booster is fine. If you have taller valve covers, you'll need something smaller.
