That would be Kuziken I think, he put a Z in the frame to get it down to ground level.
His build topic shows what he did and how he did it.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!

Parts are cheap breakdowns expensive.

There are a couple of guys that fitted airbags together with 2" drop spindles and a flip kit for the rear axle.
That should get the Van a little closer to mother earth ;)

Bad Ast has around 6 in front and almost 8 in the back. I designed and built a full frame and new front and rear suspensions from scratch.
