Yeah, what they said...
Good body color for this treatment, too.

As far as the ride height...at least it's pretty level, which I like.

It rides ok for the most part, the front is firm but not harsh. The rear springs maybe a little too soft..I'm saving up to get at least 16' ,

@coupid, I actually work in Goleta, so you just might see me around

I don't think 240's look good that low. The wheels don't line up with the fender wells, but if you like it, more power to you.

Can't call it stanced. Would not disagree that it's lowered though...

Thumbs up

Mine's that low


I like it. It just needs some good wheels and you're good to go.

I think it's a good looking wagon and will look great with some new wheels.
I'm looking forward to getting another wagon in a few years.

Every car has a stance. Homie never referred to his car as "stanced" in that way though.

OP, which van shocks did you use the back, factory ones or ones made for lowered ones?

I think the ride height looks great... but I love low cars. I would say your very near the ride height of mine and mine is daily driven. (Until I blew the trans a bit ago, need to get the t5 swap done)

The ride is not optimal, but it is far from terrible. We would cruise all over Florida in it. I have dumped way more money into my slammed VW's suspension to have a ride not near as comfortable, but I could take corners at 45 haha.
