Default How low should I go????

Time to move my T4 project on ('99 2.4) and lower it!!!

Being poor (soon to have an ex-wife + teenager still at school + new girlfriend!!) I have fitted a set of the 15" VW Viper alloys on the van and so have enough space to fit the weeks shopping under each wheel arch!!!

Not sure if I should go -60mm or -40mm??? At this moment in time I am thinking of just replacing the shocks as I don't carry any weight in the back (only an Ikea sofa bed).

Any opinions??

Cheers

Thanks for the reply

I must admit -40mm was my first thought as I don't want to have the original shocks bottoming out but just worried that with 15" alloys it won't look that different!
