    4" lift to 2" lift VIC

    Hey guys, the patrol I bought from interstate has 4" lift and I was looking at changing that to 2" so that I can get a RWC done.
    This is the list of work that has been done to the suspension:

    4inch dobinson springs all round
    8inch dobinson shocks up front
    10inch dobinson shocks out back
    Road safe Adjustable Panhard front and rear
    Road safe Adjustable drag link
    30mm coil spacers up front
    Castor correction bushes
    20mm gearbox spacers
    Extended brake lines

    I'm trying to change as little as possible to make the 2" work.
    So what can I keep if I go to 2" springs and shocks?

    Cheers in advance

    Ended up just swapping the 4" springs and shocks for the 2", without adjusting anything and its fine.

    I would think the castor will be out and the panhards and drag link would need adjusting.

    From 4" to 2" something would need to be ajusted maybe even the brake bias.
    Great you did a straight swap win win I say

    Saw another post of his earlier, looked odd but was reasonably close. This one makes no sense
