need help on my 53 pontiac chieftain

Hi I've just bought a 53 chieftain, I'll live in Ireland where the road totally suck so I need to raise it(it was lowered)... I want to use an air kit but am I looking at mega bucks? all I want to do is raise the back end when driving and let it back down when parked... no messing at lights or anything...

I also want to add power steering... is there a kit available

And finally... I want to convert to disc brakes.. again is there a kit available...

Any help would be great

If someone has put in a lowering block in between the spring and axle all would be required is removing it and getting the correct length u-bolts if thats the case. It depends on how it was lowered. Double check the springs if there isn't a lowering block in there. has a disc brake kit.

Not sure on the power steering, that may require quite a bit of work and fabrication.
