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 two as well at the same time?
and, can anyone recommend any uprated springs to go with the Bilstein dampers?

Any advise would be appreciated.
Cheers
Dave

:) I've got a SWB camper conversion, only got 17" wheels with 222/55/17 tyres, running Weitec HD springs and Weitec shortened shocks all round on about a 40mm drop, the front is a little 'bouncy' if driven with conviction but that is down to the torsion bars not the shocks. The back is planted T:
