Sorry I'm just seeing this today, but John McGee sells a complete subframe for a Honda D series that keeps the original Mini Suspension intact - you can find him on Facebook at McGees Custom Minis, he's in Maryland and has them in stock right now. He does a lot of Honda D series conversions so he had his own design subframe made up and it's really good.
As for suspension, if you go with rubber springs, consider the Smooth a Rides sold by MiniSport, I've installed a couple of sets and the ride is SO much better than standard cones. They sell a complete kit with springs, shocks and hi-los included.
80 mph top speed seems pretty slow for LA traffic unless you never use the freeways.
