Baddog Nice start. Looked just like one of mine when i started. Having done a lot of these trucks you have to decide what do yo want from your truck. You still gonna use it for a truck but just want to lower it? Whats your budget? I know a a good shockwave system can cost as much as i have in my whole truck. I know as i have one in my 37 Nash. I most times on Your truck remove all the rear leaves but 2 and run air ride tech s-10 kit. I have had this under my personally shop truck for 6+ years 100,000 plus miles No problems. It rides nice when empty going 1000 mile trip or i can toss 2 crate motors in the back and put some more air to the bags and it rides good and handles the load. The best thing you can do as go with seperate valves on each bag to help stop the roll. I see your is a 3/4 ton...those are my choice for frame as they are diff than a 1/2 but dont kick up as high as the 1/2. What will you be using for a front suspension. Hey here is one i built with all corvette suspension looks just like your truck LOL
