I've got the springs on mine. I quite like the ride, despite the fierce opposition to them. A bit bouncy/choppy and it hammers like hell if you don't see a pothole in time, but the cornering is vastly improved and the motorway wandering severely reduced. They do sit a bit lower than 60mm once on, and there is some 'westie lean' if you have all your units down one side.

looks like this on my standards:

I wanted a 60mm drop but I do have a camper & westie lean doesn't sound good ! does anyone else have this problem? any pics?

Could be the vdubbits ones from cornwall, only 40mm but a flat ride?

I got two words E - Bay

I got this kit on mine fella and its bloomin brilliant front -50mm rear -40mm, head down ass up. the ride is sublime it soaks up bumps and potholes and with a high top like mine it stops the motorway buffeting -60mm is gonna be a harsh ride and you could save yaself some shingers to boot, remember its a camper not a race car :wink: as for the westy lean Brickwerks do an anti lean kit for about £50 which will sort the problem and you can get it all fitted up together :D

Westie lean is visable on most campers and the severity depends on your conversion and how much it weighs. Brickwerks sell shimms to rectify this. My van is a panel, so carries a bit of extra weight, and the reimo units are pretty heavy.

Thanks for all your replys.

So i need springs, dampers, "westie" shims (cos I have a camper) & new anti roll bars :ok

Brickwerx is the best :D
but some of the cheaper stuff will improve the ride :?

You pays your money I suppose
Thanks again

The "Bad Grip Performance" ones are the same as Jamex, and are the same as G-max. Different brands, same manufacturer.
I now Believe this is what Just Kampers are now selling.

Google T3 jamex, search Brick-yard and Club80-90 forums for Jamex, see what comes up!
