Need help installing the right size Air bag on 1952 chevy coupe stock suspension.

Hello everyone I'm new to this forum, I hope someone can help or lead me in the right direction. I've done mad research on the internet, I've read recent post on here, but nothign too helpful on this specific problem. I recently step nothed and bagged the rear of my 52 chevy coupe, which came out excellent. However, now i'd like to bag the front end but im using the stock suspension because it's been completely rebuilt, new kings pins control arms the whole nine. So i'd rather not do a front clip swap if i dont' have to. Anyway, I plan to install bags in place of the coil springs, but I only have 5 inches that i can work with without having clearance problems. I'm willing to hack off part of the crossmember to make something work. what do you guys think? what can I do. I was thinking maybe i can use a rear leaf style bag in the front with a higher pound rating. I would need to use a bag with a 3/8 npt inlet because im running 3/8 in the rear or does it matter? so I'm looking for an air bag, spring, or cylinder that can work best, it would have to be within 5 inches in collapsed diameter, with a 2600 lbs rating or more and a 3/8 npt inlet if that matters. i know people have bagged 49 thru 54 chevy's using stock suspensions, so someone please help.
Thank you

Sincerely, LALO
