Opinions needed

I have a complete 1973 Ford F100 truck front end on my 1960 F100. It needs some rebuilding. I really would like to lower the front end 2 to 4 inches. I can use drop I beams and rebuild the front end. This will be pretty costly and still not give me a very good ride. Would I be better off with a Fat Man front end (or some other?). This would be expensive but would give me a much better ride. Any opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated. What are any members with 1957-1960s doing to lower theirs? Thanks to anyone for replies.

would try asking in the suspension section... theyd probably be better suited to answering the question than in the chapter threads...
