I've fitted H&R Green 55mm springs and Bilstein B4 Shocks to one of my 2.5 SA buses. Both the front springs have the Brickwerks Westy shims on top as I find the H&R Green springs slighty too low on the front.This combination is fantastic and not too hard like Koni's seem to be for normal day to day around town driving. My other 2.5 bus has the AVO 50mm springs from Brickwerks.Standard rears shocks and Sachs Super Touring fronts. I used an extra VW black rubber upper spring seat pad on both rear springs to bring the bus level.I think the extra weight of the 5 cyl engine made the back end sit slightly lower.I'll try and get a picture up soon of the H&R/Bilstein bus for you too see. Ps. With all lowering the front bump stop needs shortening.Wink Pps. Don't forget a full 85L tank of petrol makes a difference too ! If you can afford it !Shocked

Eibach springs give a good ride, sensible money for a good technical spring.
Nice 40mm drop too.
Couple them to some Bilstein B4's and a set of Powerflex steering rack bushes an jobs a good un.
