+1 for the Eibachs, superb, and they seem to get even better after a few k.

I've also put the Sachs shocks on some whole later and while they were also an improvement, they weren't anywhere as big an improvement.. I'd say to anyone do both if you can, but if it was one or the other then the Eibachs would win no question!

I should have clarified - the shock absorbers the Sachs replaced were completely knackered, so I noticed a huge improvement... Plus I was on ex-AA HD springs too. Completely different ride after the changeoverT:

is the ride with AA springs even higher than normal stock? I'm currently emptying my AA van out of tool lockers etc and looking for suspension upgrades/replacements too...

Do any of you guys carry passengers in the back, do you know if the ride for them was hugely improved? My wife always moans when we travel up the M6 round Birmingham cause of the vibrations in the back.

Yes I believe so - on AA springs, my van sat higher than stock velles & multi vans
