If you have 49-54 passenger car spindles with disc brakes then our spring over axle for Chevy spindles should work. You inquired on the 6” drop and depending on engine height this puts the oil pan fairly low. The common drop on the 33/34 is 4”. You can lower it another inch with a reversed eye spring if desired.

This kit comes with a standard eye spring but we can substitute a reversed eye if you want. With a 6" drop axle you will be getting very low with a reverse eye spring however.

A panhard bar is not commonly used on front end kits with hairpins or radius rods as the heims or tie rod ends will absorb any side to side movement which is minimal. Kit number 91049801 has the bracket for the four bar only and has different dimensions. If desired you can modify this bracket for hairpin use or fabricate your own, or weld a bracket to the existing bracket on the axle to accept the heim end on the panhard bar.
