Lowering my 86 Wagon (GL-10)

Recommended Posts

So i've just picked up a 86 gl-10 wagon, 4wd, 5 speed, turbo. what is the best way to lower it down, currently on cut springs, looking for a better way. 

 

rides surprising well for cut springs.

Smaller tires. But, then you might need armor plating on your rear differential, and your entire exhaust system. And you will be sweating every speed bump and cow pie. Forget about 4WD'g in the snow because you could high center on the snow drift at the end of your driveway. BTW, is that the silver wagon from John in Gaston, because there are not many of those on the road in northern Oregon.

fwd xt front struts and flip the top hat on the rear strut. if the springs are short, limit the travel of the strut by tying steel cable around them to limit their travel so they don't bounce off the spring.
