Default ex AA suspension!!!

I've lowered my van by 60mm alround and is sitting well and has had time to settle. It was about 3-4 months since lowering and all been fine! but latley have been noticing that when i hit a small bump in the road it bounces and shakes the van quite badly.

any ideas or solutions?

I'm abit lost on this one!!

cheers chris.

I load the van mainly with power tools and my tool pouch! drivers side rear has a massive box which has my subs and amps in! just in front of the rear seats is where the power tools sit. but until today the tyres were rubbing now and again passenger rear!!

pornking had a look at my van today and said " the front could be on the bump stops which is why its a bad ride!!"

but if i raised it up it will look rubbish !!

any ways around this with out raising?

cheers chris.

on mine it was fine when empty with the 60mm drop but once the bed was fitted i had to remove the air bags and cut the rubber bump stops in half. that stopped the nasty banging on every bump.
