I’d say get it converted first, then have the suspension fitted to correct the way the van sits etc.
I’ve got a T32 and did a full conversion and it sat lower at the back. I then went to CRS performance and got the suspension swapped and the correct rated H&R springs to lower the van and make it sit level and drive nicely.
I think if you lower it first then throw a load of weight in it, especially with it being a T28 then you might find it doesn’t drive right.
However, if you put coil overs on then maybe that’s a different story and you can adjust them accordingly after the conversion weight is added.
I’m sure someone who knows about coilovers will be along very soon to explain that one.

Hi guys,

recently got a 2018 t28 t6, it’ll be converted to a camper. Looking at suspension options what do you think of the below?


not looking to go crazy low and will likely be running 20’s.

cheers
Don’t touch it. 50 to 60 mm is a lot for the very capable shocks we fit. The B4 aren’t performance shocks. They won’t cope at all. , please rethink this before you waste a lot of money ! Those shocks won’t cope well with the additional unsprung weight of the bigger wheels either !

Thanks Steve, appreciate the comment. Would you say the B14 coilovers are a better option?

No I would say thats the worst option. That is one of the kits we remove all the time. sadly the guys selling that kit don’t have much else to offer So that’s what they sell. Research on here about B14 spring problems , it doesn’t suit campers because the rear springs are poor design and break a lot !,,, there are much better options . Have a look on the Bilstein web site to see how good that kit is actually
