Default Re: Need some advice regarding rear springs

Looks like some night time reading there Matt, lol
I don't want to run the risk of problems so I'll keep an eye out for some wheels, expensive pastime considering I want to change the rear springs as well

I was wondering where I got the 900kgs from.. but I think I should have said standard wheels are nearly 900kg rated. I got it from somewhere anyway! Haha

I had the same problem with our T4.
Rubbish springs on the back which meant when we put our R'n'R in, the back sank right down (even cutting the rear tyre on the arch)

I wasnt sure about which set to put on, so I ended up putting on a set of T4's r us 50mm Medium/heavy lowering springs.
I run 245x40x18 on the back. Before the ride was terrible but now its like a new van.

I don't know what its like with bigger profiles etc...but for me they really work. And they're only 99

Sorted the van out untill I can decide on what I really want

Only my opinion though.

Thanks for that mate, I'm not sure which springs are in the back, we have a rock n roll bed and units in there but it seems to still sit ok, the rides fine on level roads but if you wander down B roads in North Devon it's like you've got 2 concrete blocks as rear springs, perhaps I'm just getting old, lol
