Exactly what he said!
IF you want a reply that makes sense, at least type in a way that people don't need a Webster's dictionary to interpret the question!!!!
 
Also, there is a reason why the forum is split into sections........

Thanks Simon for the easy to follow guide. Lowered ours last week. Was a doddle as soaked threads on and off for a mth. Used vogtland springs and the ride is better but not too harsh. Used a spanner as didn't want to buy a socket(I'm too tight).
I cant spell for shit..wont use spell checker or predictived text...

Hi all,
I lowered my van today by 55mm after researching and assembling he right tools.
I am by no means mechanically minded and completed the task in about 80 mins.
So so easy once you have done the ground work.
I was quoted £150 labour for that task!
Cheers
Simon

Fair Enough but a "quote" will take account of possibly seized torsion bar nuts which can be a reet bugger, But well done £££ saved 👍

Hi
The nuts were so easy to shift as the under side is pretty good as only 40k on the clock.

I'm going the opposite way, I want to get my (new to me) lowered van back to standard ride height.

Question, what length are OE standard springs ?
