    Suspension Confusion!

    Evening all, I have seen a lot of chat regarding suspension, in particular, the lowering of it and I wanted to ask what is the reason behind this? Is it safety, good looks or fuel economy? Or a combination? My van is definitely heavier (obviously) following the conversion though I feel it...

    [Guide] Fitted my H&R/Koni 50-80mm kit yesterday

    Should I wait - lower now or once converted?

    Hi guys as always a little bit of advice please. I want to lower around 40/50mm although comfort is a priority rather than out and out performance as long term I intend to convert to a camper. As funds and time are short at the minute my dilemma is if I get the optimum set up and appearance...

    New H&R/Koni adjustables from CRS

    I bought my 2018 PV used at a year old privately. The first owner put a Maxx adjustable suspension kit on. Looking at their website, it's a cheap kit, but adjustable front and rear. It was OK, but I felt the front springs were too soft. The rears were great though. I had to adjust the front...

    The Pursuit of Suspension Happiness

    Yep, it's another suspension thread and it's a fairly long winded one, but...... It's time to move on from my B14s. It's important that I choose well this time, mainly because it's fairly expensive, but also because whatever I end up choosing will form part of the catalogue of upgrades I'll be...

    Sold Box of SoLow suspension T32

    Right the suspension is off! Haven’t had a chance to clean it up before I went away so just took a picture in the box. You get exactly what is in the original SoLow picture that I’ll add. You won’t get the top plates, drop links and the bushes you can see in the box. To be honest you won’t need...

    T28 Campervan - Massive Suspension Upgrade

    So I have a brand new T6 camper conversion. I love it and it's amazing. The only issue I (had) was the ride and handling that I can only describe as driving a cross between a space hopper and a pogo stick. So this has been transformed in 2 stages as my budget allowed. 1st stage - brand new...
