My adjustable rear units will not give enough adjustment.

Obviously AH has his solution, but my back will not take such hard suspension.
I have not even trial fitted the doors yet so live in ignorence of the problems ahead
happy new year HM
Glad to see you are back in the garage seems that we all are now venturing out!
Softer springs and shorter (adjustable platforms) will be the way forward for us.
With the engine gear box and two bodies on board the original springs hardly budge.
We are going to use AVO coil over shock units as they have been helpful their advice is to best guestimate the rate of spring we need and then if it turns out they are to soft/hard then just simply change the springs as they are not that expensive.
Have thought long and hard about it and I am sure we will be able to get it right using a 200lb rated spring.
Perhaps (tongue firmly in cheek) we could have a "lowrider system" to allow me easy elegant access over the where the doors should be.
