Thats if they are the later suspension arms, we will have to measure them agains mine to be sure. It will save you money on spacers if it is later setup on the rear

They are buddy already checked. I've even got Abs brake calipers on the rear (obviously abs not connected) This shows they are from a really late van
Plus i dont have staggered rims and the rears stick out further without spacers. Im running front early suspension track and late rear. Fine by me

Cool, i wonder what happened to the original rear suspension, seems odd to just change the rear

Not really mate. Means i have rear disks on a 93 instead of drum's Makes sense to me. No need to change the front really, not when you can just up rate the dampers and torsion bar.

Early bumpers in comparison are rare and you just don't see as many with alloys which work (in my opinion)

Im a fan of the monoblocks but its clear they are Merc and not really keeping with the theme.

Trying to find something nice and classic

Btw i have changed the title in the hope we can put all this behind us. For the record i like both style of bumpers, mine just happen to be early.
Ah the voice of reason.

I like both but prefer later. But you know that by now so I'm not gonna labour the point. I was merely trying to redress the balance, which I think I managed to do without insulting anybody. But hey, maybe I'm not the only one who was having a bad day.

Has anyone banded a set of early square hole steelies? I think they would suit an early van, with a nice bit of silver powdercoat
