I got the rear end lowered 2"s by pulling 2 springs out of the spring pack. It is now leveled. I still want to lower it another 2"s all around. I am still waiting on a new front lower Moog control arm. On of the ones I received was not a Moog part so I sent it back.

Also managed to get the rear bumper on yesterday and then mounted the receiver hitch today.

I got the Dakota drop spindles installed today and just about have the stance I was looking for. It was a bit of a job getting these to work but I am still using the stock brakes. I did have to clearance the passenger side caliper bracket a bit as it was rubbing the rotor. Also the rotor on the driver side was rubbing on the lower control arm just a bit and need a little persuasion to stop that. Anyhow, here is the van with its current stance. I really need to find a new front bumper.

Did you ever find a front bumper? I found an original pre 98 one that was really straight. I had the molding holes welded up then powder coated it satin black. Was hoping I could mod some brackets to put it on my 99 shorty but NO DICE. Shoulda looked closer at the curvature BEFORE spending the dough on the bumper. It's sitting here in Nor Cal if you're interested.

I haven't been on here in ages. Just got the bug to get more work done on it. I actually finally found a new repo bumper and picked it up today. I got a painted one without the cover for a cleaner look. Hope to be bale to get some paint on it this weekend if the weather holds out.

Got some work knocked out on the van today. Got the new tires and wheels installed as well as the new front bumper. Now with the new wheels on the wheel gap is a bit more than I want. I want to try to lower the van another 2 inches all around, wtill trying to plan that out. Currently have 2" drop Dakota spindles up front.

I was hoping to get some new amps installed for the sound system but didn't get to it today.

Wheels and tires look great on that van. Looks like you’d rub all 4 corners if it was any lower?

Thanks! It was hard to find wheels with the right bolt pattern for these 5 x 5.5 lug pattern. Had to find a machine shop that would bore out the hub since they are so massive, 3.5" hubs.
