Looking forward to seeing this develop. Your Doka has the standard front driveshafts which is a bonus as the thicker ones provided for 16" van with front lock are very hard to find If ever needed. Also you have the CV boot protectors on ( the rubber part has long since gone ) Lefteris has a 16" panel van and he is currently making up a set for his van . With the brackets you are half way there.

Why a 16"? making a lot of unnecessary hassle as now you will need to get 16" arms for a start as the ones you have are fooked. Good luck with that!

Hi Dai,
I suppose a lot depends on the extent of the rust but what sort of money is refurb ?

I am going to cut the rubbers this week and post some pics, so if you like them I can cut them for you too and mail them. I got half a meter of rubber so I plan to make a couple of extra pairs .

If the trailing arms are 16" then the mounting point of the shock absorber will be unevenly higher, compare to 14" which is dead center.

I think given the state of the current 16" trailing arms I'll probably go with my current 14" westy ones. It will be good to see your cv protectors.
