1937 Buick lowered

I was wondering if anyone has lowered a 37 buick or car with same suspension. I hadnt seen much for drop spindles in the aftermarket. I would like to do airride on this car but havent found any kits either.

There are dropped uprights from fatman fabrications. 2 1/2" drop. If you read into the wiki about Buick/olds /pontiac ball joint conversion, it used dropped spindles from an impala.

I have an extra set of 58 Pontiac controls arms and the rest of the stuff to do the ball joint conversion , I live in Il also. Where are you at?

Im north of bloomington bout 45 miles right on rt 39. I take it you have done this impala conversion, so you use the impala brakes and bolt pattern is the same for the wheels
