lowering a 06 peugeot partner van
#1
hello, i have a partner van on a 06 reg, and would like it lowered, i am next to useless at stuff like this, is it a easy task? im a joiner so my skills are no good when it comes to cars and vans!
im based in the northeast near whitby/middlesbrough area, does anybody know of someone who would take this task on? thanks

Ha, why?
Boy racer?
Are you intending to race? If so, get another car.

im a joiner, i need a van for my job, nothing wrong with making it a bit lower, im far from a boy racer, ive had fast cars before but im happy with my slow van its easier to get my dogs
, timber and tools inside! just wanting to make it a bit better looking

The "better looking" bit is subjective, but it's your van - why not make it exactly how you want to see it?

Also, don't be afraid of the rear subframe; there's a good change its pivot pins are shot already so you might look at killing two birds with one stone - rebuild a donor unit with suspsension drop, and change it over.

My window looks out onto a road with speed bumps, very entertaining watching the boy racers scrape the bumps.

Ok. That's a good reason.

Photoshopped.

Costs less; not so practical.

There is one issue with the front lowering - it will stress the "P" bushes differently and may result in them not lasting so well. A bit of recalculation on the installation angle with a replacement set, should sort it.
