I have a dumb question: Now, before someone calls me lazy.... I did a search and read quite a bit about air-ride.... but, I still have questions.....????? My 1950 Studebaker Truck is about ready to start screwing back together. I have done quite a bit of the hard work (truck has been blown apart down to bare frame, chassis work is finished and body pretty far along), truck has been mocked back together and collected about 85% of what I need plus spares. Currently, I am getting ready to blow the chassis apart and give a good coat of satin black, then reassemble mechanically. Now, here's the thing: I am getting ready to order coils for the front and drop the engine back in. Then I started thinking about Air-ride....... (Dun, dun dun...) Living in the land of steep driveways and those stupid HUGE speed bumps, clearance is a concern. After some thought, I figured adjustable suspension would be VERY nice to have. Example: Raise the ride height for daily driving, load leveling when the bed is full of parts and generally for looking cool. LAYING FRAME is NOT the goal here. So, here's my specs: *1950 Studebaker 2r pickup truck, SWB, stock body. * Basically a SBC/ auto with Camaro 10 bolt rearend on leaf springs * 1979 (ish) Camaro Subframe, stock. * Stock looking truck other than tires/wheels. A few details about the STUDE for those unfamiliar: The front track with Camaro stub is very close to stock. Front wheelwells have plenty of room. Bed is double walled like a modern fleetside, but has removable rear fenders like any other 50's truck. This means NO WHEELWELLS INSIDE THE BED. (hope that makes sense). I have NO INTENTION to back 1/2 the chassis and would like to know what it takes to basically just bolt in an "Air-Ride" type system. Don't get me wrong, I can fabricate a bit, weld and all that. BUT.... being late in the game here, not interested in building a new chassis. If it doesn't work, I will just do my best to tuck as much stuff up under the frame rails and deal with whatever gets destroyed (having owned quite a few traditionally lowered cars over the years). To be clear: Truck could easily be running in a few weekends (but my plan is to have it finished to a certain extent and driving before Summer comes back around again. Raising is more important than "laying frame". I want the ride height to be about the same as cut coils and lowering blocks. In fact, it doesn't need to be much lower than that when it's all the way down. I completely understand HOW air bags work, 4 link rear suspension, and back 1/2, mini tubs, etc... not to mention a place for all of the crap (suspension) to go when the truck is all the way down. I am also willing to accept less travel down to keep my bed floor stock. Just want to know, is this feasible? Ballpark cost? Thanks in advance. Here's the truck: First pic is when I bought it. Last pic is the truck I am basing mine on. .
