I have a GMC Vandura, 1990 (basically the same van as the A Team van). Whats the "done" way of jacking up the suspension? Particularly the rear end. Wishbones front, leafspring rear. Any help?

What do you mean like this.



you need G30 front springs and G30 rear springs with gas shocks, hard to find new now....new is best, other wise get second hand G30 springs from a yank braker and get them re tempered like new, ... Dave.

If you want a sensible bit of lift you could swap the suspension pieces from a G30 as the heavy duty van sits a fair bit higher and the springs are firmer so though it sits higher it does not roll or wallow on the road.
It also looks more impressive on the bigger 8 lug wheels and tall aspect tyres.
