My best mates van slammed on 20s and h&r deep coilies

He drives it around loaded with tools and tiles with no issues apart from big speed bumps. Generally has a decent amount of weight in it daily

I think a lot depends on the quality of the coil overs and getting set up correctly

Si at stillstatic installed and set it up

That looks gorgeous! I'm not thinking that low, just an inch or so. Parked up next to two caddies the other day and it looks like a monster truck in comparison

I can’t advise you on which kit to buy as I have no experience with either, but I have a workshop in Northumberland. Where about are you?

My Caddy on v-maxx extreme coilovers. Selling these kits as well. Even went to Poland on these 20” wheels. No trouble and loading isn’t 758KG anymore but like 400KG isn’t a problem.

18 inch wheels with H&R front springs and darkside rear kit. No problems on some tough building sites

Hi Guys, new to the site. I bought a 13 plate caddy about a year ago as a work van now just planning to turn it into a project and use it for weekends away. I was just after some advice as I’m wanting to get it as low as I possible can as it sits like a monster truck at the minute. I have 18 inch BBS SX alloys fitted. Just after what the best kit to buy is and if anyone knows where I can take it in the north London area to get it done

Thanks

Hi. I had just about come to terms with not lowering my caddy as I've had so many low and impractical vws but now I've read this & seen pics I want to lower mine now.. :D
