    Issues lowering T6 with ABT

    My T6 is used for my wheelchair bound son. I plan to get an air ride kit fitted to enable me to drop in as low as possible to enable easier wheelchair access. However, I've just noticed my lovely ABT bumper flares down at the edges quite significantly. The corners sit about 3 or 4 inches lower...

    Rumble on left hand bends, lowered 100mm [Resolved]

    Can anyone offer any advice to the cause… I’ve been running Stance+ coilovers for some time and am pretty happy with them to be honest, theyve been wound down to about 70-80mm lower than standard since fitting. As the camper conversion has progressed the rear suspension has settled and become...

    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...
