    Is it possible to higher ground clearance on my van (Peugeot Boxer 2000 compass drifter 460RL,
    We have an awkward shape drive way and it will ground if we drive in.I think the air suspension kit will not work on a ALKO base.are there shocks out there that can make it higher.

    There are certainly air suspensions available for Al-Ko chassis ... we had AS Air Suspension on our Autocruise Augusta.
    You can also fit large castor wheels to the rear end ... these are normally used to help bording ferries with motorhomes with long rear overhangs.
    Oh yes .... welcome ro the MHF forum.

    shocks dont alter the height they only stabilize the suspension. .
    have you tried reversing in rather than driving in .

    We enquired when we considered uprating our van, it's not so cheap for the Al-Ko chassis but we can certainly recommend Kathie and Phil at AS who fitted out an earlier van of ours as they did for @icantremember.
