As some of you already know, i'm pretty chummy with the Transporter HQ team. They regularly ask if they can borrow my van for T32...

    Lowering The Front Suspension - Surely I Need Longer Arb Drop Links ?

    Mates Just installed an H & R ARB set. My van is running lowered VMaxx adjustable coilovers. Bought a set of shorter drop links to avoid any binding and keep the ARB attitude stock at the lowered level. It made sense at the point of purchase, I assumed the ARB was higher up and had links down...
