lowering 53 chevy pu

just joined and have a question.don't think i want to do a front crossmember on a very original truck.found a 3 inch drop axle and 3 inch drop springs,would like to do both in the front.any reason why it wouldn't work and drive decent?i also bought 600 16 bias tires,would radials have made much of a difference in handling on this truck because i wanted to stay original.thanks.

Should work fine. That is a lot of drop so check clearances but otherwise should be as good as stock.
