    New Koni H&R 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...

    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...

    How do you measure coilover height?

    Had Stance+ fitted and yes I know it is a budget coilover and there are better ones out there which are more superior. However, how do you measure the ride height. I know with lowering springs they are either 40 or 50 mm but how do you know with coilovers. This is a picture I have taken and...

    Lowered 70mm

    Been across to Steve @CRS Performance this afternoon to get my T6.1 lowered. I went with the Koni/H&R coilovers down around 70mm, keeping my davenport alloys for a while but may change at a later date. The drive home was much better on the Koni/H&R’s, doesn’t feel like I’m on a boat now. I...

    Ground clearance before lowering?
