    Towing biggish stuff.

    Here is a pic taken today of my new T32 coupled up to our family caravan. I'm thinking that I need to review the height that the rear end is set at? This is a shame because the KW V1 coil overs look perfect when not towing. I am no stranger to towing and have towed tens of thousands of miles...

    Front control arm bushes gone after 7000 miles

    Hi, after only 12000 ks in my 2020 T6 Caravelle the front control bushes have gone. After taking it to the place of purchase I was informed it wouldn’t be under warranty due to the fact I have had the van lowered. Any idea to the course? Would going over speed bumps aggressively cause this?

    SoLows and towing a caravan - anyone doing it?

    I've been running SoLows now for around 18 months and cant fault them. I tow a teardrop trailer with no problems but I'm now looking to upgrade to a 6 berth caravan and I'm not sure if the SoLows height at the highest setting will cut it, I'm running 18" banded steels with the SoLows fully...

    Do you stand on your wheels to get to the roof? How low did you go?

    I have sports kit I put on the roof. I stand on the back wheels to strap stuff onto the roof rack. I want to lower the van but don’t know how low I can go and still stand on the back wheel. How low have you gone in this situation?

    Spring backplate rubbing

    Hello all, It seems I keep ruining my van. I had some new H & R Springs fitted with a 40mm drop. These were done by a local garage, who have seen my van for the last time. Has anyone experienced this noise before. Thanks
