    We recently had new Bilstein coilovers fitted as part of a conversion. The van's done 14k miles so barely run in. The idea was to get the best quality solution, I've had cheap suspension before and found it to be a waste of money. Dropping the suspension was required in order to get the van...

    Still trying to decide what Coilovers to buy to lower the van Read loads of posts on here with Bilstein B14 as being excellent - but are they overpriced? Middle ground (price) VMAXX most users happy - so what is the difference? Low end Jom with many users saying they are good with no problems -...
  9. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    I have a T4 westfalia 95 and it's starting to lean quite heavily on the driver's side (fridge, storage, tank etc...). I'm going to buy some Bilsteins and replace the shocks but any advice regarding the springs would be good. I suppose I might need to replace springs too but would rather have a...

    I have read a ton of info and tried to get as near unbiast info as b14s as I can and am at crunch time now for b12 or b14s... I am no lowering junkie, but gave been told that the best set up for b14s is typically a 50mm drop....so far as I can tell, the b12 and b14s, have a technical advantage...

    Anyone on bilstein b12 suspension? If so how are you finding it? And did you achieve the look you were after as well as improving the ride? Any pics on 18's? I pick my new 18" sportlines this week and lowering is the next thing to do. B12's sound like a good set up but not seen any reviews
  12. Steering & Suspension
    Hi guys, I could do with some advice from those in the know please. I have currently have H&R 40mm drop springs with worn OEM shocks and anti roll bars. Both the shocks and roll bars will be changed soon with H&R roll bars going on. Apart from the shocks bottoming out on the front...
  13. Steering & Suspension
    I have a 2013 T5 (T30 Weight cat.), 180bhp SWB Kombi. Its running on the standard 235/55/17 tyres but I have had VW lower the springs by 30mm. I had them lower the springs to overcome the 'boat effect'. The vehicle is very harsh and every bump is felt. It has been suggested that I should have...

  15. Steering & Suspension
    Hello all. So I've just purchased a set of Bilstein B14's for my T32 that I will be fitting at the first available time in December. Just wanting to know if there is anything that would be worth while replacing whilst I do the job. So if anybody has any suggestions what to replace, perhaps from...

    Morning folks. I'm just about to have to dig in the pocket for new shocks as my 120k originals have had their day. Now here lies my predicament.... I'm torn between the Bilstein B4s for all out cost and value and the Sachs HD for the great feedback I'm reading from various sources on here...
  17. Steering & Suspension
    Right! I'm after some new dampers for the van and was wondering if the Bilstein B6's would be up to the job for a Camper Conversion, as obviously there is going to be a lot of weight in the back of the van. So, Are they going to be Heavy duty enough? and would it be better to replace the front...
