Well - I finally am happy with my T3 suspension set up. A lot know I run a lowered van, I reckon it is a good 60+mm drop But I was never really happy with it. It was soft, and smashed every pot hole on the road. Speed bumps need to be tackled with caution The original lowering was stock shocks and some unknown stock springs that had been lowered by Universal Springs First thing I did was purchase 4 off new Bilsteins. Shorter ones. The rears are standard beetle rear shocks and the front are off a Nissan Nivarra I put the rear ones in with the Universal Springs and it made a huge difference. No more dolphin over speed bumps. The stock shocks that came out were smashed. Absolutely no upward dampening on either shock. If I was going to all this trouble, I though I should get some "propper" lowered springs. After asking around I settled on H&R springs. 40mm - 50mm drop. So I started putting them in. First thing we noticed was the Universal Spring did a bloody good job of resetting the springs. They were heated, re-wound and re-set so as they properly sit in the cups. Anyway - I decided to put the H&R's in but I noticed the rear H&R's are the same height as stock ones. When you put these in with a shorter shock, a couple of the rings bind and the shock is on full stretch. So - back in with the Universal rear spring The fronts, were more like a 30mm drop I reckon. Againg, the front spring looked well done, so I opted to put the Bilstein in with the Universal Spring. There is a fair bit of machining bushes to get the Bilstein to fit, but is well worth it. Front Shocks Front Springs Rear Springs So - basically, I am back where i started but with bloody good Bilsteins in. I can now drive over speed bumps at speed and I have the So - in summary, it is a lot of work to get it right. If you want a lowering of the bus a "little" then I think the H&R are the way to go. But I would probably use stock shocks. Definitely stock in the rear. Undecided what you would use in the front. If you want it at the height I have it at - definitely the shorter Bilsteins and machined bushings on the front and the beetle Billstein on the rear. As for springs - I reckon I would give Universal Springs at Hoxton Park a call and get then custom set.
