whats up everyone!
i have a 2000 dodge dajiban camper build.

Yea, you read that right.. Dajiban Camper!
van
Im wondering what everyone is doing on there front ends with the drop.
i got the rear figured out, im just wondering for the front is it just stiffer shocks and cut springs?

is there a certain shock and lowering spring everyone is running? is it just chopped springs?

i searched dajiban suspension on google on got a link for KYB heavy dutys.
only info on ebay about them was a pic of a drifting daji lol.
but KYB website had more info about the shock. they were also advertised on the show TruckU.

Help me out guys, let me pick your brains![Linked Image]

thanks can you help with any info on dajiban suspension drop?
all im really getting from pictures is flip kit/shackle drop and what seems to be an added rear sway bar with swift motorcycle shocks lol.
and for the front i dont want to do dakota spindles because id need rotors and calipers , so do i just cut springs and do heavy duty shocks

Search.....
Check out the posts by a member on here called Natural State.
Here's a starting point:

EDIT:
Better link:
https://www.vanning.com/threads/ubbthreads.php/topics/189358/1.html

Some of his posts and comments deal with lower a Dodge.....
Click on his handle and then click on "show forum posts"
Then shift thru the posts for info on his drop and some others as well........

A Quote here from Natural State:

My front end consists of:
'77 B200 upper control arms
'96 Dakota dropped spindles from Belltech
'93 B300 lower control arms (going in very soon)
'77 B200 caliper mounting brackets (ground for clearancing)
'77 B200 caliper with ceramic '89 B200 pads
'88 B200 outer tie rod ends
'73 Imperial control sleeves
all other tie rods, idler arms, drag link, etc from '77 B200
added steering stabilzer
'78 New Yorker rotors to keep 5X4.5" bolt pattern
have to be careful about a couple of things, mostly the fact that the Dakota spindles have a much shorter steering knuckle. You will turn much sharper, and have NO bump stops except for the tires hitting the frame. There is a thread somewhere about how I did it in the beginning. make have to redo that thread....
I know it's posted on the other mid Dodge forum too...
Hope it helps....
