Hey guys I am trying to do some research for my father who owns a 1947 Chevy truck. He is in the process of restoring it. His goals are for it to be able to cruise around and be in comfort. He is interested air suspension and is was told to check out Fat Man Fabrication. He has an original frame. What I am looking for is any words of advice on what you might think could help or work.

I would recommend replacing the front and maybe rear end with more modern running gear if he wants effortless and comfortable cruising.  If you don't like the idea of digging around for a donor car, you can buy a Superride II or similar front suspension that bolts right in.
