Looking at sitting my van on 50mm springs. got a short wheel base if that helps

Im aware you get what you pay for however im after a nice cheapish set of springs to lower the van.

Im also under the impression that you just need springs to lower the van. but getting confused as to why you can buy dampers aswell. Are these better than standard ones or do yo have change them to go with the spring?

you can leave the standard shocks on but ride quality isnt as good.

uprated shocks are used to improve the ride, handling reduce body roll etc..

You'll lower it on cheap springs and then wish you had spent the money on decent springs and decent shocks...

You can drop 50mm with just springs in the back. The standard shocks will cope fine. Any more than 50mm and you're looking at shorter dampers too, and some modifications to the front top damper mounts I:
