  1. Bumpy crashing ride

    Steering & Suspension
    I wanted to get lower stance so had -50mm springs fitted front and rear. However, the ride is appalling very crashy over speed bumps, pot holes etc. Has anyone else had this and know of a solution? I was looking at different dampers as the van has done 114,000 miles. I have a lightweight camper...

Has anyone fitted coilovers for this...
