help with lowing an xr panel van

hey all,

i am having trouble finding out which is the best way and what to use to bring the height of my xr down about 3-4 inches or so. i still want the ride to be nice and firm though.

have have heard all sorts of things from lowering blocks, resetting leafs. sorry i am fairly new to suspension work as world like some pointers on where to start.

i don knw much abt leafs, but read somwhere that u should reset the leafs for best result and also add in 1-2 more leafs while ur at it.

Where are you located? No use in recommending a suspension shop on the other side of the country from you.

DO NOT use lowering blocks - get the springs reset. The quote seems ok, I was quoted about $150 a few years ago to get the rears for an XW reset a few years back. Add the price of new front springs and 4 shocks and the quote sounds ballpark.
