Post drop a 54 Chevy even more

My 54 belair already has a 3" drop all around, with Fatman suspension up front and lowering blocks in back. If I want to go lower, are there any good options to go from here?

Iam not a real expert in this area but I would suspect a Air bag syetem will get you as low as you want to go. Either that or "channel" the frame were you make a chennel in the underside of the body were it sits on the frame so the frame fits up in the underside of the body. Never done either one of these but I would imagine the air bag would be the easiest. let know what you do to get lower.

Envy, like maveric says you have a few different options. Depending on what you want to invest in your car time as well as money wise. you could get and airbag suspention that would get you down into the dirt with the least amout of work, but they are pretty pricey. You could do a channel of your '54's body, or you could have a full custom frame built and your body channeld and not mess with the suspention. I would look into the first two options since you already have the fatman frontend. Airbag suspentions are very nice when done corectly.
