32 chevy air bag front suspension

Hey Has Anyone Put A Cenpen Air Bag Front Suspension On A 32 Chevy? Or Any Feedback On This System Used On Another 30's Car?
I Need To Get The Front Of The Car Lower.

I Am Looking To Upgrade The Parallel Front Leafs And Drop Axle To Something Better! The Ride Is Not What It Needs To Be! I Am Looking At A Tci Independent Front Suspension, But I Like The Look Of The Drop Axle!

The System That Is Under The Car Now Is A 6" Drop Axle (tube) With Chrome Eaton Detroit Springs, And The Springs Have Been Dearched 1". The Reason For The Switch Is The Spring Bolts Will Hit The Bottom Of The Frame With A Light Bump. I Have Since Added Timbren (rubber) Springs To The Top Of The Axle And This Has Helped Somewhat! The Ride Seems Choppy Because Of The Rubber Helper Springs. Any Suggestions? Independent Or Cenpen Air Ride

The Rear Suspension Is A Custom Triangulated 4 Bar Setup With Air Bags. The Car Is Already Equipped With The "air Stuff" But The Ride And Ease Of Installation Of The Cenpen System Is Unknown?

Thanks In Advance For The Info

Most A arm suspensions does not work well in the early cars ( prior to 1935 or so ) ... the fenders interfere with the correct placement of the upper A arm.

Air bag stuff has not been around long enough for the average JOE to have installed many so Hands ON hobbyist information is scarce.

As a Moderator, I have no useful technical help for you ... but I will bring the question back to the top in hopes someone with experience might see the question.
