Yep, Supermetal Trident’s, at std springs. Looking at adjustable springs, as the other side sits 15mm lower, as I have racking there
Nice! Which springs you thinking about, the Eibach adjustable ones? Also- did you fit the side bars yourself? Which ones were they?

Thinking the Eibach adjustable. To level the the rear. I mash through the outer edge on the front near side tyre, the only thing I can think, is the weight on the rear off side causing this. The tubes are matt black from Leighton Vans, I fitted them.

Nice, how easy were they to fit? Also, what did you do to de- chrome the front grill?

The tubes aren’t to bad. I fitted them to my T6 about 3 years ago, with a hangover, not recommended, so knew what to expect. 8 and 10mm socket to loosen the under trays, then 10mm drill to allow the bolts for the mounting brackets to poke through the plastic under trays. About 1.5 hours all in. Matt black badges f&r, pinged off the chrome transporter on the tailgate, and matt black vinyl wrap, £7 from amazon. Again, about an hour of fiddling. If, and when, trim pieces become available, I might add an accent colour, but I’m liking the look at the mo, less than 40 quid. My inspiration came from Bognor Motors, they have sprayed theirs gloss black, so a thank you to them:thumbsup:. Are you thinking of something similar????

Nice! Thinking similar, i have a t6.1 coming later in the autumn, basically the same as yours but with gloss black supermetal tridents as opposed to the matt ones you have. I will want to fit side bars and have it lowered too- am I correct in thinking the only springs currently available for the t6.1 that wouldn't void the warranty are the eibach adjustables? They are considerably more £££ than the eibach sports springs which is annoying...

There is a set of lowering springs in the VW accessory brochure, I’m not sure if they are for 6.1 yet, as they are different to 6. I think I read somewhere that the VW accessory ones are made by Eibach???
I’m still in two minds at the mo. Adjustables or std lowering springs and add more racking on the other side of the van, as price would be about the same?? Oh the dilemmas.
will you be going gloss black tubes???

The VW fitted ones are for the 6.1 I drove one with about a 30mm drop and it drove fantastic on 20s
I'd have gone that route myself except I do go off road alot, their van rode better than mine.

Yeah, i believe eibach produce the springs, but from what i have seen the only suitable ones currently for the t6.1 are the adjustables, hoping they just do some standard springs for the 6.1 in the future... i think i'll go gloss side bars!

Hello. I’m new here. Just picked up my first transporter. It’s a beauty! Only have it for 12 hours then it is off to Apple County Customs for sound proofing, lining, windows and leisure battery.
Can’t wait to get a proper trip in
