I suppose you need to decide what you are going to use it for, is it going to be fully loaded i.e. full units, R&R bed, cooker/sink, pop top etc. Are you going to go off road in any way or are you only running on roads. You have lots of things to take into consideration mucker. Just remember the lower you go the more issues you will need to overcome.

Mines is dropped 50mm approx. using Sachs HD shocks and Eibach springs, van is what I`d call a 3/4 conversion with full set of units bed and I carry most of my camping kit at all times. I think the ride is spot on and the bus looks good, I also run on 19" wheels but that is a whole other issue deciding what wheels to run on.

Any way picture is the van now after a re-spray, the back height is a bit false as the bus is empty.The front is the proper height.
