    T28 lowering options?

    £500 budget… t6 needs lowering. Thoughts…

    Hi Guys, picked up my 2016 SWB kombi on sat. Love it but it needs to be lower to make it more of a ‘car feel’ and obviously the aesthetics too. I’ve got £500 to spend. I know b14s etc are ideal but it’s just not happening from a budget point of view. What would you do? I want to go about...
