Hi HoovieYou say you run very light most of the time? Would it be fair to say that your multivans standard kerbweight is a fair bit heavier then a standard T4 panel van with the extra seating, carpeting, buddy seats, insulation, etc?
Do all T4s have ARBs of some thickness or other? (and both front and rear if so?)
Yes these days, it's just my toy, so most of the time it's just little old me (well old is correct but at 127.5Kg not sure about little) in it!
The Multivan ULW is 1945Kg, so yes, the B2B seats, and bed seat, ply floor, carpet, sound proofing and plastic trim obviously add weight over a basic shell. Quite how much I really do not know.
My front ARB is just standard 23mm, which is fine, 27mm is an option but it is 1.8990 times stiffer.
Rear ARB is standard on few models only, the factory option for mine (which I do not have) is 26mm, 28mm is an option, but again that is 1.3450times stiffer. As you can see, changing ARB's can have a huge effect on the handling and suspension characteristics. A heavy rear ARB can induce quite a lot of oversteer on a front wheel drive vehicle too
