    You would want heavy duty springs for that weight. Seriously suggest 2' raised as that will settle to around standard hieght when you haver the van on. Not much difference between manufactures; I personally use King Springs.

    Bilstien shocks are considered the best.

    With that setup it'll feel like a new car. Will be abir stiffer than original but will handle heaps better.
    Cheers, John.

        I have what he has!! 5 years no problems(billys&kings) 50mm lift from standard can't go wrong.

          King Springs have served me well as well. (80 000Km) The original shocks are still performing well (200 000km) but will change to Billsteins when the time arrives to replace them (soon). You may wish to consider polyairs to level the load on the back.
