How to lower a first-gen van

It seems to be the $64,000 question that many of us are asking. In an effort to find the answer, I recently posted up on the world-renowned HAMB (Hokey Ass Message Board) and after a mild roasting over symantics -- referring to lowering a first-gen van as a "body drop" vs. "channeling", a few people in the know actually chimed in. Rather than repeat the highlights, I thought I'd simply share the blog thread itself. Just paste the url below into your browser and enjoy.

Feel free to give it a read and to those of you who may be unfamiliar with it, have a look at a great blog for pre-63 traditional hot rodding info. But make sure and get your terminology right!
