As I said on your introductory post, I have the JK springs on my van. They do the job but leave a bit more want in the ride quality. They also drop to more like -68mm on a loaded van as they are not so stiff. Now, I'm not super fussy and the ride is a million times better than standards, but it could end up costing you alot if you don't like em and end up going for AVOs from Brickwerks anyway.

Lowering the van will have no effect on the sliding door to rear wheel gap. Only sticking on bigger wheels causes issues with this. :ok

my opinion is, JK springs are ok but the ride is too spongy!!!!!!! thye lower the bus but you have to hold on to the seat when you corner

i haveAVO 50mm from http://www.brickwerks.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; & on price/quality & ride they are spot on, not too hard, H&R springs area bittoo performance isprired but it depends what ya use the bus for! AVO are defo the all rounders for looks, ride, quality!

go on, you know it makes sence! i would recommend getting new shocks too, i have'nt replaced mine & they are the OE ones from the factory & thye are now errrrrrrrrrrr DUE! so i'll be looking at HD shocks soon-ish

Cool stuff guys!

Looks like im gonna just get the springs from brickwerks. The shocks on the van dont look like they are that old to be honest and they feel pretty solid.

Cheers for all the advice much appreciated!! :D :D

brickwerks! the right choice! JK has gone right down & i've only had 3 things from them & they've all be dubious in the quality department!
