Do not go low, will ride like sh*t.  bouncy.

plus blow out shocks.

also is it a wagonvan or just a wagon?

Technical wagonvan is pain, has jail bars in the rear window.  plastic interior etc.

New shocks need to be on the list too. if they arent blown already, they will be soon after you lower it.

I've seen something about those orange ebay upper control arms hitting the inner fender on wagons.

You on the wagon forum yet?

fender wells liners (plastic) will rip out if too low.

inner fender wells metal will get smashed up and possibly rip.

sorry to bust ur bubble but that suspensio n is garbage!!! not trying to be a dick but its the truth... i like to think of my car parts like my women, quality over quanity.. . everyone can get a fat slut and thats wat u bought in terms of suspensio n. the first thing thats going to fail on that setup is the bushings, which will cause a shitty ride and lead to other parts to fail.

usually when people buy suspensio n, the first question is "how will this suspensio n ride". people that are either new to the game or everyone around them has ebay garbage will go the cheap route and buy cheap suspensio n and wat it to ride smooth, but thats not how it works. buy a good full body coilover or buy a good quality strut (KYB, great product and not expensive) that has dampening adjustmen ts and a good lowering spring with the spring rates u desire or a slipon coilover like Skunk2 or Ground Control. good suspensio n can be had at good prices and that will perform to your liking if u read up on the prooduct and look around for deals... ive built a custom Koni yellow & Ground Control setup for less then $900, u just have to look around for the deals. i found that H-Tech sponsor section has some of the best deals out there and parts can be had for good prices, not cheap but good prices. just some food for though i know u already bought the suspensio n, but its not too late to seell it to some other sucker (lol) and go get good suspensio n that will ride and perform like u want it too. just a little advice from a fellow EF'er that knows a thing or two about suspensio n.
