good morning Fred,

I do like those wheels, or did I say that. What are they called? I need to start saving up. The van looks killer when it is low!

Great job with your van, Keith

I see a CA plate! Sweet ride! I really like that stance! Just an axle flip on the rear or did you get different springs. I want to get my 99' down a little bit in the front and back. How much did you drop the front end, and what size tires are you runnin.

Yeah, it's hard for me to see the relationship... looks to be about 2". I'd like a little more information on the project and how it's affecting the two. How about photos with it connected to the trailer, and it not connected to the trailer?
