Hey Tim B, I was just wondering how did you managed to lower your van, I have the same one but I can't find any suspension kits that would fit it...

From what I have read use the std van shocks and lower the rear beam, ref the front I believe GTT suspension, springs, hubs and wishbones are what's required
