4link

I got my controls from a shop in Ohio at a real good price. it's a Air Lift, very happy with it. PM me and I'll give you the name of the shop. Can't list it here. My Ply has stock rear springs under it with a Ford 9" and a original M11 in front. I ran air just in the rear of the Buick so I could drop at shows and have a real tail dragger. I drive it at ride highth most of the time.

By all means go with air, I might put it under my Ply just get the right ride hight. I have air shocks now.
Thanks for the reply 41---.Can you tell me what air controller system you are using? What suspension is in the 34 Ply?

41--what do you mean by "a little choppy"? I'm thinking of putting a 8.8 diff from a 2004 Explorer under my 39 Chevy with Shock Waves and tri-4 bar. Would you prefer something different if you had a choice? Any other opinions re: this differential and spring setup?

4 link rear

Been pondering putting a triangulated 4 link with coilovers under my 48 chevy p/u. I mentioned this to a car builder buddy of mine and he said it would be a mistake because the ride would be terrible. I've always heard the ride would be improved using this setup. I'm sure there's someone out there that can tell me their first-hand experience with this. Thank you
