Chevy tortion bar to spring swap question

Gents,

So ive decided to put my 62 GMC half tone on air. The back is complete with bags, mounts and all the good stuff. Now for the front ive taken the tortion bars out and noticed with the 3 bolt lower ball joint its difficult to mount a bag, due to the center bolt. Im intersted in swapping front clips or arms, just not sure what fits. Any suggestions are welcome!

The common swap for those is the newer clip. '64 had coils and swap. I think you could do '66-'72 easily also

The entire front crossmeber and front suspension unbolts from the frame, the later suspension and crossmember bolts in. Lot of stuff available to lower the
truck available, ie lower spindles, air suspension etc. Easy way to get disc brakes
also.
