solid axle custom air bags 52 1/2 ton

HI i am triing to figure out how to set the front suspension on my 52 chevy 1/2 ton. I have decided on a Tri - 4 link in the rear with 2500lb air bags, but in front everyone keeps saying to swich to IFS. I am not running fenders at all on the truck so i want the traditional look of a solid axle. Is there a way to do a 4 link just like the rear with hidden air bags under the crosmember. if so could someone send me a link or some pics of a simalar build.
Thanks for the help

Air Bags?

I am not sure about this but I THINK Peterbuilt Trucks.....the Tractor trailer guys offer an Air Ride front axle, and I am pretty sure they stuck with a straight axle config.
Might be worth looking to see how they handled it.
Bagging a front axle should not be all that different from bagging a rear.
You may need to fab some chrome cover to hide the bags if that's an issue.
Talk to the Airlift folks.....I'm sure they have dealt with this before.
