John is the man. I'd go with a set of 620# lowering springs, KYB GR2 shocks, 1.125" front sway bar, and roller spring perches from Opentracker. A set of adjustable strut rods would also make a difference.

You could also go full Global West with coilovers, but that's overkill

Air ride can be done in the front real easy the rear will take a little welding.A kit like this Air Ride youll have to widen the center piece.
