Hello everyone, I just bought a 320 and will be shipping it from UK to Spain where I now live.
WHat is the safest way of lowering the truck allround? Would need to meet annual safety test.
Thanks for your help.

It would depend on what they are looking for in the inspections, if they want it stock looking then you are pretty limited, adjusting the torsion bars and 720 4X4 leafs in the rear are the only things that will appear stock, if lowering blocks in the rear are legal then that would be the easiest way in the rear.
You could have flatter rear leafs made over here in the US, don't know if that is an option in Spain.

There are spring services that 'Re-Arch' leaf springs. A competent craftsman should be able to increase or decrease the amount of arc in a spring set. Should leave them appearing original stock. Look it up on net.
Better to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy !!

Re-arching the springs is the cleanest way to go about lowering a truck.
And then re-index the torsion bars to lower the front.
Cut bump stops to lessen the bottoming out problem.
Shorter shocks may be required as well, depending on how low you go.
