Nope just a matter of buying the springs and shocks if you go really low to suit. how much did you want to lower it by?

probably just need springs...

You jack the bum up on stands (under chassis rails)... Put the jack under the diff to support the weight... Undo the bottom shock bolt... Undo the shock hat behind the rear seat panels (4 nuts)... Lift the shocks out... Drop the diff down until the springs go loose and remove (watch you don't stretch the brake line)...

Just make sure the new springs are properly located in the rubbers and carriers...

Cheers,
Tim
