Default 63 Ford Falcon Deluxe Wagon

Good Evening.
The next project to hit the lift is my 1963 Ford Falcon Deluxe Wagon. I am toying around with the idea of modifying the suspension.
My thoughts are leaning towards air ride but Im not totally sold. Im also considering lowering spindles for the front when I upgrade the front brakes and lowering leafs in the rear.

Has anyone on here done either? or have references?
If I do air ride should I/can I still install 2" drop spindles?
Good, Better Best way to set up the rear for air?
Or just stick to a lowering kit and call it a day?

Thanks in advance!
Long Live Detriot!

I've always dropped my cars & never put airbags on one but love Falcons & longroofs are my fav! Gave my son a '63 Ranchero for his 16th B-day! Keep us in the loop & be sure to start a build thread!

Rust... Mother Nature's paint job... don't fool with Mother Nature!

I'm a static drop guy. I've installed a few air ride kits and just don't care for them. Drop spindles and lowering springs are what I like (don't like lowering blocks)
However, they do have a phenomenal ride
