kits or procedure for lowering f-100

I am sorry for having to post a question like this but I suck at all things related to computers I searched for about an hour and didn't come up with anything that helped me out much, so once again sorry.
Ok I just finished my 1953 willys wagon and moved on to my 1956 f-100 long bed and was wondering if there is a kit for lowering both front and rear if so, is it possible to get a link to one. What do most of you guys do to get them lower.
I want this done right so any help would be much appreciated.

As the Moderator here.....I would like to


The 56 F100 is one of my favorite trucks and the prettiest F100 my opinion. I have owned several Big Window 56's.

Now for the question.......

The front can be dropped a couple of different ways

1) remove a leaves from the springs ( or buy new lowering springs ) and a dropped axle. I sent my front axle to MorDrop in California ...years ago and they dropped it about 2 inches...
2) install a Chrysler Volare front end......been done lots of times..
3) install the front clip from another vehicle with IFS ...

The rear can come down by new springs, or dearching yours.....I put a Corvette IRS in one of mine.....

I suggest finding a few Truckin magazines.....F100's are real popular and their are lots of KITS and helpful information in them.....
