Ah ok I thought the thread below was what’s possibly left over. My bad then. Yeh I’ll get pics of the front. Here is a side on.Hi, welcome to the forum. They look like they are already as low as they will go on the back. You got any pics of the front shocks showing the adjuster? You may need to look at alternative options to go lower.
Yeh that was empty . Ok so up to go down at the back, I wasn’t sure, so it may already be all the way up. Any way to tell?Someone will soon tell me if I’m wrong, but it’s wound up to go down at the back and wind down to go down at the front.
Is the rear of the van empty? Stance looks about right if it is.
that’s the back, I’m confused as it looks like to compress the spring it needs to come down? Which looks like there is play? Maybe am being totally stupid hahaLooks all the way on the back to me. The two black rings get wound up or down to make height adjustments and they look to be right up against the flange of the silver aluminium collar. No adjustment left there.
You might be able to go lower at the front, but need to see the shock to be able to tell.
Ok I thought it was about compressing the spring. I’m not sure atall hence asking the question.My reckoning is that if you wind the rings down at the back you are effectively lengthening the shock at the back therefore raising the ride height.
Went and looked at them makes total sense now. Next question can I swap out the springs for bags , aka air ?Here's my theory. When the van isn't moving the load above the spring remains the same, therefore the spring will try and remain the same length. So winding the adjuster down above the spring, with the load in the van remaining the same and the spring wanting to remain the same length you will push the back of the van up, therefore increasing ride height.
It's the opposite effect at the front, where the adjuster sits below the spring, you wind the adjuster down and the spring stays the same length (with a given load applied, even zero load to take it to the extreme, a spring can't get any longer than is physically possible) and so it effectively shortens the shock, therefore lowering the ride height.
Not sure about air, never really looked into it myself. There are coil over kits that go lower. SoLow from transporter HQWent and looked at them makes total sense now. Next question can I swap out the springs for bags , aka air ?

I think there are others too.
The front is already at its lowest setting
