coilovers

  1. Steering & Suspension
    Had been debating for ages which coilovers to fit on our latest van (2014 T30). Our previous van (2009 T28) had B14's lowered 70mm. I wanted the same drop but didn't want the Bilsteins again as found them a bit hard and wasn't impressed with the customer service when I had problems! I almost...

    Hi all, Just got my spangly new wheels fitted and would like to drop my van a bit further, and improve my ride quality a bit compared to the Eibach springs it's currently sat on. I don't have the budget for Bilsteins, but Projex offer KW and therefore the new ST sub-brand too.... Does...

    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 -...

    I've been on the forum reading reviews and comments about coilovers for quite a while now and had more-or-less decided I wanted to purchase the CMC Platinum Kit for about £500, however, I can't seem to find them anymore. On Flea-bay they were advertised as: THE NEW EXCLUSIVE CMC/VMAXX T5/6...

    After reading most of the "Which coil?" threads, we decided on Vmaxx coils and took advantage of the free fitting service at Van style. Having done about 3000 miles on our current suspension setup (T30 LWB standard springs and dampers) we weren't sure what to expect in terms of improved ride...

    Hi all, I have been converting a T5 slowly over the last year. Part of the conversion includes vmax coilovers and 20" alloys, which together with side steps and a front spoiler looks bang on. My problem however is I now need to use the bus full time for work which will take it over all kinds of...
