billy b4's should tighten things up a fair bit, so fit them first then see how it drives. i've got them on my lwb t4, along with cmc green rear springs, the heavy duty ones. it rides well, but at the end of the day, it's a van so not really as chuckeble as some of my other rides ! :eek:

so try the b4's first then mate.T:

I have B4's fitted with Eibach springs, improved my ride beyond recognition. Got it all from T4srus at Busfest. I have also bought from them over the phone and at their premises in Swansea, always had top service from themT:

If its that bad .... has a previous owner changed the suspension ?? Are some components just worn out ..?? has it been badly lowered ..?? Are the components not suitable for your model of van .?? Is it a model that simply wont take extra conversion weight (like an 800) without issues ..?? Too many seem to think they are all the same , but the,ye not ..!! Investigate ....

shocks may not cure it, is it stock height or dropped if dropped how much and which springs, there may be more to it if in doubt photo your springs on here. beware the internet mechanics
