Bananavan tryed just about all of them recently... You get what you pay for!! H&R -50mm or KW -40ish not cheap but well worth the money.

We're both using H&R's now, sits perfect, great comfort because of the progressive spring & handles great.

After a bit of clowning around to replace a broken ( and quite soft riding) red lowering spring on mine ( not sure of age or origin, was given them about 50000 mile back) have put H&R on mine, following chats with a few guys here and Simon Baxter at Brickwerks, which is who mine were bought from .Dunno why I didn't have them years back. I run 35 offset 18s and the thing just sits flat now in corners and doen't ride harshly at all. Not the cheapest, but in my view well worth the extra dosh if you have it.

Paid 180 (ish) they have bought the van down about 50mm. Although I expected them top drop it 40mm it's at about 50mm with my camping conversion and toys aboard.
