Can anyone with etka or acess to the parts catalogue get me as much spring information as possible.
We know there were different colour codes and lengths of original spring but what version was fitted to what model and payload capacity.
Have you changed your springs: what was the original colour code and off what model: do you have, can you get a photo of the spring?
Any info and input especially from those with vw info or in the trade much appreciated.

Think i am going to be looking for a set of these pink springs.

I have just bought a T4 that someone has lowered at some stage, going up my drive with the kids in the back, the springs were crashing and banging as the suspension bottomed.

Going on a shopping trip to France would be a complete no no with these fitted.

My back would be destroyed by the time we got home!!

Anyone want a set of springs to lower their T4?

Im after a set of heavy duty 1200 springs as i using my van every day, its kitted out with racking etc.

I noticed that i had a old boiler and tools in it and the was not looking good at all.

I also want to put on some BFG AT type tyres at some point so i actually need mine cranking up.

What should i look out for.LOL:

I also have a 2.5TDi Caravelle, albeit a 2001 - the rear springs I think were original and knackered, one had lost its pigtail, got a pair of new looking black heavy duty type ones from a member on here who does wheels and suspension lowering professionally so always seems to have loads of standard springs available at a bargain price. His forum name is Colese just do a search or take a look on the wheels and tyres forum for him!
