nice van and loving the winch idea bounce
i dropped mine with the 60mm springs and left the bags on, good job to as when i put a mates trailer on i was dropped right down and on the bump stops so pumped the bags up and happy days.
depends on how much towing you are going to do as a lot of people have told me you cant tow with the 85mm spings.

Cheers guys...


Yeah i was told the same about the 85mm springs.... But i like to prove peeps wrong.... The tow hitch is 5inches higher then the one that was on the split so can't see it being a problem with my little trailer tent.. We'll see when i get her loaded up... If it's no good then she have 60mm spring put in.. Wink

maybe something to do wth the height of the hitch, as my t3 when hitched to the big trailer, the trailer jockey wheel didn't come of the ground affraid had to get the t4 of my bro's to drag it.
