I spent the day today designing and modifying the factory control arm to accept an air bag and to give the car about 2 more inches of drop. I now have about 8 inches of movement up and down in the front and it gets it down to about 2 inches off the ground. It should lay the lake pipes on the ground once I get them.

Here are a couple vids I took:

The first is a vod of the bag itself and the arm:

The second is from the sie of the car:

I did see the crack in the last pic and I fixed it.
