If i jack up the van the wheels hang down, therefor i assume over filling the reduction boxes? Is this right?

attach the damper with a slimmer or counter sunk bolt (and Idependent Rear Suspension IRS) hasnt anything to do with a front beam ;-)

just putting the bolt you currently have in the other way around will buy you a very small amount of more movement
