64 ford wagon, air ride

I'm doing a 64 Galaxie wagon and am planning Air-ride tech's new front air shock and a four bar with air ride in the back to eliminate the leaf springs. MP brake's disc conversion front and back and Wurth-it rack and pinion power steering. Anyone out there with advise or experience with any of this stuff. It's a lot of money and I would sure feel better to hear from someone who has had some experience with these components or something similar. Thanks much, Ray in Denver

My question is why?? What do you hope to gain by doing this?? I mean if you just want it that is fine..but then if you are undertaking mods it woudl be good to have a particular goal in mind..Saying that I have had that kind of car and some good shocks and springs and sway bars do wonders and do not cost as much..

Check out FatMan's rear Wonder Bar suspension for the Mustangs. That can be done easily and inexpensively to your big wagon (any leaf car) and use air bags for suspension height. Holler at me if you want more details how I did it for decades.

Of course if you are into wow factor rather than height function, go 4 bar.
