im running the t4srus 60mm springs along with there 5mm shim plates.

didnt change my shocks just springs

van drives fine

takes corners very well

def need to have the tracking and the camber done.
dont just get tracking done find somewhere that does camber aswell
as it will wear the inside edge of your tyres within about 2000 miles.

should only take an hour to lower it yourself.

i use my van for work so is loaded up with materials and tools and power tools all the time.
(apart from at night when in hallway).

def should be ok with 60mm with full conversion.

people are running 85mm kit with camper conversion inside.

mine is dropped with 60mm t4srus springs and their lowering plates.

prob dropped somewhere around 70mm

mine is lowered 60mm on the back and 75 on the front. i just used springs.

rides pretty well. little bouncy on the front on rough roads but fine really. i tow with mine and carry medium loads. i put a double seat in the back too.

i bought my springs from ebay S/H for £20 . check a few of the link on here for spring prices.

I can probably help with lowering and camber issues (PM me)
