How to make an Old School Suicide Front End

I was wondering if anyone had any old school tricks for lowering the front end of a 32 Ford AA. Using stock parts.

Cool suicide front end

Maybe if I looked through my collection of old Hotrod , Car Craft etc. magazine I might find something for you. Let me know, but I must warn you it might take time, if interested send me your snail mail address and if I find something I will send it to you.

Thanks, I have been going to car shows and talking with some old timers who have done it. I guess I could even change the axle to one with more drop in it, but I don't want the expense of buying a new drop axle. Maybe the old timers use to use an axle out of something else to get the rods low. If you want to take the time to search through your material, I would greatly appreciate it. If you find something my snail mail is Ed Moore 4L Candlewyck Ln. Utica, NY 13502

Thumbs down suicide front end

Sorry, went through my old magazines and cannot find anything. What I can gather from all the adds is that people like Sbarbarro, Pete and Jakes, Super Bell, TCI and Total performance can help you. Sbarbarro's add in an old Rod and Custom magazine talked about replacement / dropped suicide front end.
Good luck
