    Calling All Rust "Experts"

    Long story short I bought a 07' 170 with 52k mi on it about a year ago with the intention of using it as a platform to build my first conversion on knowing that I'd make plenty of mistakes along the way and probably end up wanting to redo it all at some point. 1 year later and I'm about 3/4...

    Rear rides lower than front axle on 170WB 2500 Conversion

    Hi everyone, The rear of my van rides significantly lower than the front, almost 2" at the wheel well. It's a conversion I built myself, it weighs almost 9,000lbs so it's possible the rear is heavier. I did replace the front struts when buying the van at 185k, but not the front. Will replacing...
