i'm lowering my lwb van this weekend,got set of 2 jamex 55mm springs, and gonna adjust the front in the usual way, not got shox tho, how much of a necessity is it to change them, and do front and back need doing, also do i need to get camber/tracking done straight away, as i might have to do 2 trips, around 300 mile total (to work on monday, home on friday) and then get it all adjusted the week after.
pretty empty at the mo in the back although it will have full camping inner soon.
cheers

Step away from the Jamex, they are dogs:*t. No strength in them, any weight in the back and well, they ain't up to it.

They ain't that cheap for nothing, you get wot ya pay for

If not Jamex which springs do you recommend? Any ideas on the shocks I have only found the Koni solution that includes springs but its about £1K ouch.

You can get away with lowering using springs and standard shocks and no tracking. It's worth going for a good quality spring though,do a search,plenty of info on here. With tracking I'd be more concerned about getting the caster right than the camber as lowering my van 60mm seems to have lightened my steering quite a bit and the wheel can get twitchy if I brake hard.
