hi mate-really depends on your budget
the front is torsion bars that wind down so easy enough if they are not seized
the rear springs will depend if you are using an empty van as an everyday car or for a full camper conversion which would need stronger/better springs
a lot of people have had springs from t4srus or cmc and happy with them prices vary from 60ish to 90ish
or there are heavy duty ones such as kw or h&k which are sold by simon at brickwerks for around 175 - 250


propably confused you more now than you were earlier :D

hi there,

I used -60MM T4'sRus springs, which are superb, yu need to decide how low you want to go, and what you want to carry, then have a look in the steering/suspension section, and have a search around the forum... there is a lot of info allready out there
