i need to lower my 95 chevy gladator 2500 van to make it easier to enter as i have a disabiity.
if i could lower my van it would be easier for me to get in the drivers seat and the ramp for
wheelchair and scooter would not be as steep.
If it has coil springs, shorter coils would work or have them cut & shortened. Coil compressor clamps for 1" drop or so are OK but not recommended, & either way the ride will be compromised New shorter coils is the way to go, keep in mind you might have to buy shorter shocks too & or look into lower front drop spindels. If leaf springs, a leaf or two could be taken out by a spring shop or heated & straitened & re-clamped together. Air shocks or air bags is another option too in place of springs. I once lowered a 90' Chevy pickup with 4" drop front spindels & a rear end 6" axial flip & "C" notch kit, with shorty shocks, & 50 series tires (smaller side wall) Lowering can open up a can of worms! Good luck.
