You asked how much I lowered the 76 ford. The ford is lowered with chasis tech beams up front with I think a 1/2 coil cut off. I used a AIM rear flip kit and a shackle. I still need to c notch the truck. the trucks rides very good, only the flip kit required me to do some grinding to make in fit in the notch of the axle. I bought the kit on craigslist very cheap 200$.
