Well,fitted the "50mm" lowering springs on sunday and after running the van today checked the drop..20mm front...25mm rear:confused:, there will be some settling but i doubt it will be 30/25mm.
The van is 05 with 44k and has not been abused(it sat so high it looked like a 4x4) so the old springs had not sagged,i also undid the inner wishbone/rear trailing arm mounts so the bushes could unwind and take the tension out of them,will measure them again in a few weeks to see if there is any change,fingers crossed as most people dont notice any different in the ride height

I could put 6 layers of dynomat inside to make it sit lower.........but that would cost about the same as a set of coilovers(should have gone for them in the first place ...DOH)

Ring Mike up and tell him your problem.

It would be interesting to see the levels of customer serviceI:

I am running CMC -60 springs and they dropped it -70mm with nothing in the back! They didnt need to bed in just went straight down. To be honest even with -70 drop it still looks too bloody high. :ILU:
