    Hi and welcome.

    Any vehicle can be lowered, its just how straight forward it is. Have a look at either Eibach or H&R, they do a wide range of springs etc, not sure about Vito though..

    Welcome to the forum, yes mate lowering ur van is not too bad a job I've done mine looks spot on now!! U can use H&R, Eibach or Spax springs they're all good aftermarket springs.. whilst doing mine I swapped all the bushes on the anti roll bar and on the shocker's. And even swapped the anti roll bar links with genuine parts it's not cheap but at least u will have peace of mind it's done right!
    Hope that makes some sense to u??
