You wrapped the entire van? how's that been holding up? wouldn't mind changing mine from white.
Currently the only option to lift the front end is with a spacer from www.spaccer.com. They sell several sizes. If you don't want to go that route then bug the guys over at www.vancompass.com. I have been urging them to start developing parts for the Promaster but they need a donor for 2-3 weeks. I was going to drive mine up to them but we were behind schedule on our full time road trip south.

What comes with the kit from Germany? Have you compared the dimensions of the spacer with the spacers used on various Jeeps or other 4x4's? If you got lucky you might find a spacer off the shelf that has dimensions that would fit. I wonder how similar the coil and tower is to the Jeep JK. I have a 2.5" spacer leveling kit on my JK. I'll measure it tomorrow and see if it's close to the configuration of the Promaster.

Id like to raise my front about an inch. No more than an inch and a half. Is there a simple way to do that? Thanks

The Promaster front coil spring is quite a bit bigger diameter that the Jeep JK. Do you have a link showing the kit from Germany? I'm assuming it has other components like a bump stop spacer and some kind of a shock extension bracket.

Another option might be a spring swap. Same dimensions and spring rate but 2" longer in length.

SPACCER from Europe...I ended up getting rid of my van before I got to making one. Its expensive for a spacer, but it works and fits. The biggest pain is taking out the struts of the PM, you have to take part of your dash apart to get to the top of them. When I get another PM project van I will tackle the custom front suspension I am sure. slamit.
