2wd springs are longer and softer, some people use them as a cheap lift
I can send you a pair of used syncro springs if required

On the subject of front springs, how do I identify my springs? I really would like to lift the front maybe 20mm just to even front/ rear height, but I have no idea what is on her. 2wd springs on front would be good as I dont carry much weight so softish isnt a problem. The wire diameter on my vans are 2wd 16.4mm 4wd 16.8 fronts and rears 2wd 18.3mm 4wd 20.0mm. Is this any idication as to what the springs are. The 2wd is completely standard, except rear springs were swapped some years ago due to a breakage.
