Hey all, I'm relatively new here to the forum! I've been a lurker for quite some time but only recently have I created an account. I'm 19 from the 805 of Califas - building a Mopar lowrider! I need some advice though. The Chrysler New Yorker is designated as one of Mopar's "C Body" platforms. The car is a unibody and sits on a front Torsion Bar suspension with leaf springs in the rear. There is not much information anywhere about adding airbags to a Torsion bar suspension. Granted, the torsion bar height can be tweaked by tightening or loosening an adjustment bolt on the end of it. Would it be possible to lower the front end by use of the bolts, and have rear only airbags? I mainly ask because the car is very long and I would definitely scrape it going up driveways and driving through dips. ANY help is greatly appreciated!

The car pictured is how it was when I got it. It hasn't ran since 1980! The engine is going to be rebuilt, odometer reads 64K miles. I've since got it some 185/70r 14 tires solely because of the size and weight of the car. People advised against 175/70r 14s for safety reasons. The wheels I have for it are Cragar SS's and I also have 1961 Polara Hubcaps as well! I plan to do a pearl white top with a root beer brown body... going for a late 60's look. I also got a new grille from a 1968 Chrysler Newport, as it has a tube like grill with round headlight bezels rather than the square mesh grill this has with the square bezels
