    I'm getting a 71 c20. Where should I look for a 2 inch lowering kit, probably spindles in front and I need suggestions for the back.

    For the rear, flip the axle, will get you an instant 3 to 4 inch drop.

    is it coils in the rear?? if it is then you have the prime set up for some air bags. if it is leafs just throw in a 2" block or the "low rider"shackles that are made by ground force and bell tech.
    summit sells one too.

    If you flip the back (assuming leafs) it will drop it over 5".... If you only want 2 in the back, get shackles, up to 4, add a hanger to that. For the front, get spindles. If you have coils, get lowering springs (check with http://www.earlyclassics.com )

    It does have coil springs. Any recommendations where to look for air bags?
