Wasnt gonna go with the unit's but thoght it was a little more pratical to have some storage and it has the added attraction of not having to empty the van after every camping trip Exclamation

I have to say that I had never seen teledails on a Bay when I fitted them back in 2000, every bugger had them by the time I had it on the road (albeit briefly!!). Rolling Eyes

Was dropped 2 outer and 1 inner spline on the rear, and was running 16" rims, Had to get well low profile tyres on the front as they were hitting arches. Did have a few teething problems with it being that low at first but after a couple of months managed to over come the issues.
Great tip, never buy VW lowered shock, use Mini shocks and change over the inserts in the top bush, they give you better travel and they are shorter and less than half the price too Wink
