Nope...just a wedge ;) see colese for one of his large ones ;) does depend on what tyres you run mind...

I'm running 17" 8.5j front and 10j rear with ET39 all round (tyres are 245/45 and 225/45). Had to trim the inside of the arches at the rear and have spaced the sliding rail a little as I've the Velle panel on the slider which makes it rub if I don't have it spaced. If you've a ply panel you may be ok.

Just to add there is a difference between the early and late T4 chassis, mine is the early one!



Not happy with my suspension set-up, so interested to see how nicely yours sits Paulm T:

Spring assistors
Is that the rubber things you jam between coils
If so do they work well T:
yup, you got it..

they work really well chief..took em off to go the Harewood show and i did rub a couple of times but the bus didnt arf feel wallowly...with the assistors in it stiffens up the whole back end, totally illiminates any bottoming out/rubbing issues, even fully laden and it allows me to run wide problamatic free

for the money, they really are a no brainer...and safe too ..as they are only doing what they are supposed to be doing, albeit in a slightly different way, ie i aint towing nothing crazy fool :D;)

Them wheels do look awesome, i have 18s on mine and they are always rubbing on rear and its only dropped 55-60mm.
I have brought green extra load springs from ebay but each coil is just sitting on top of each other.
It doesnt look right but has stopped rubbing, although i have seem a lil paint on tyre today.
Can i get wheels machined on hub so it makes them sit in side the arches better.
