Swamper Suspension suggestions for 245/65/17

I have just bought a set of Swamper wheels, with Goodrich tyres size 245*65*17. I am considering changing the suspension, and am hoping some of you could offer some advice as to what would suit best.
I don't want to lower the van, I simply want to achieve a comfier ride.

any advice would be greatly appreciated... TIA

You simply need to change the shocks to something that can cope , we have them for sure , its still our best selling item , caution buying extended length shocks as well , not the best idea
 
Thanks for the reply,
it appears the rear has been lowered all ready, but I find that the overall ride is very firm. Ideally I’d like it to be a lot smoother. Im Ideally looking for comfort, so that it doesn’t feel like the van is shaking to bits.

if you could recommend something and possibly give me a quote it would be appreciated.

thanks

The shocks are £745.00 ( T28 T30 ) £795.00 (T32 )

We need to check the ride height to see if the van is sitting correctly and not too low

can you measure the centre of the wheel to the top of the arch front and back for me please ?

OK that is almost standard height in the front and the rear we can lift slightly to get the vehicle level again

If i Was to come to you what would the cost be, also what suspension would you be fitting?

thanks for your time

HI Paul

at standard height ( or there about ) we would fit the " Special active KONI dampers" , these are by far the most comfortable shock available for a Transporter . They self adjust according to the road surface
