lowering a LWB truck

so iv got a 71 c-10 and I'm looking to lower it, my question is any of you all out there done this? I was going to do springs in the rear and a new cross member that brought the rear trailing arms up to compensate but it's only available for SWB any thoughts or ideas? thanks

You can cut a coil off the front springs, drop the frame over the front crossmember (check air filter to hood clearance), air bag it front and rear. Relocate the rear spring mounts. Posies sells soft ride rear lowering springs. Someone may make lowering spindles. You can raise the ball joints. I would google chevy pu lowering and see what comes up.

early classic has and borthers has an entire kit with springs and spindles to lower it 4 front and 6 rear, the thing i was looking to was a crossmember both offer for only SWB trucks but it raises the rear trailing arms and gives a spot for my exhaust.
