They are very nice too T: I remember these from when Colese had them. Mine's wider on the rear though don't forget ;) Only the front is original. Shame really as i would love some silly 10.5j's on the rear :(

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 T:T:

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 T:
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.

Re: Best wheels on an early T4?! - Get your pics up!

As you said Andy, its just his opinion :*

My point is, I want to see the wheels against the early bumpers, it really is that simple. I plan on keeping mine as original as possible. Sticking wheels against the later bumpers is easy as most look ok (cos more often than not its already been done)
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 :cool: but its clear they are Merc and not really keeping with the theme.

Trying to find something nice and classic :ILU:

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. LOL:

That's nuts. I looked at your pic and thought, "That looks like Glasgow" and sure enough that's your location


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
