is it right that Simon recommends 40/45ml??

i'm looking at lowering my t25, but don't wanna lower it too much so that i start having problems with hitting the exhaust etc
i will be driving it along normal roads but also trough fields & stuff when camping :)
it's more the gap between the wheel & wheel arch that i want lowering??
advice please!!!! :D thank youuuuu :)

There are a lot of threads about this subject in the archive and in the modified forum.

but to answer your question

yes Simon does.
and
when you change the springs and dampers the van as a whole lowers, and the gap reduces, unless you fit oversize tyres... then the tyres would fill the gap, and the van would get higher and the gearing and speedo would be way out.
