Hey guys I'm trying to find information on a dodge b100 tradesman. The van was just purchased is in good shape but it needs to have that classic vannin'
stance. I'm wondering what is the best way to go about this I have been looking for front drop spindles lowering springs ect. I can't find anything that will work. Leads me to only two conclusions and that is to lower the front via tire size and possibly cutting factory springs. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on getting the stance right?

Make sure the rear springs are "where" they're supposed to be. Then put the tires on. Then cut the coils.

Kinda what I was thinking... tire size would be my next question. What do you think as far as front tires?
