Why are you not wanting to do the flip kit?
Without the use of a flip kit your only option is 3" drop leaf springs with lift shackles or a 1" lift block for the 2" drop.

Best option?
wait for Mmusicman to replace his fiberglass and copy him. He is an experienced hot rodder and a heck of a good wrench, when he is done you'll have the best answer.

This is a set of lowering springs for these vans however if you have the fiberglass springs you will also need to go to a junk yard and get all the brackets and such because there are steel and the bracketry is different. This is my plan for my 89. Word to the wise -do your homework so you don't go into such a project blind. And please take pictures and measurements of ride hight before and after so other members can also benefit from your work. Mark

I find it very interesting that nobody that sell those drop springs offer any information or specs for them. Makes me wonder what they are trying to hide!
