Hi, I am going to get my wagon lowered. It has a live axle.

It has the standard front struts on it, do I have to get new ones for it to be lowered, or can I leave the ones already on it?

New springs, rear shocks etc are going on, but we're just not sure if the front shocks need to be changed. Can we just swap the inserts maybe? Or are they a solid unit on the vs's?

Car has 17's on it and is only being lowered about 2.5 inches.

Also, am going to need an adjustable camber kit for the front, can anyone direct me to a good price, or some in ex cond secondhand?

Thanks! ;)

for your fronts you can keep the stock shocks and just swap the springs, prob better to replace them if you have the money cause they will prob be stuffed if they are the factory shocks. you wont need a camber kit either they are mainly used for the rears on a car with irs. oh and the front shocks are a complete unit, not inserts like older models.

And you will need and adjustable panhard rod for the back to get the car tracking right you can pick up a new one for a little under $200 good luck and don't forget to chuck up some pics of the before and afters

Ideally yes but not needed, many people are running superlows on standard panhard rod with no issues, including me.
