I hope I don't get kicked off of here for asking this but has anyone put an air ride suspension on a 73 GTS? I think my Torino would look pretty bad A$$ lowered more than factory especially with a big set of meats on the back I don't want it to set on the ground or anything like that just a little lower stance. Anyone got any ideas on this subject?

It would be very expensive. Given there aren't any aftermarket parts made for the car, you would have to adapt available parts, and make a few as well. I'd say find videos of air suspensions being installed onto similar chassis types, and see what you can learn from them.

If you can find one for a 65-78 ford fullsize, it should be a simple install,

I am interested in this too. The front is a shock down the middle of a spring so you should be able to call ride tech for info on that. The rear would be just bags so you have to make mounts for the bags.

This article from lowrider magazine in '04 may help, shows some pics of front shock relocation, just not in full detail. Hope it helps." rel="nofollow -

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.
