Hi all

I’m about to fit the Dunlop semi air suspension system to my Ford Transit Mk8 based MoHo.

One thing puzzles me from the installations instructions is the need / steps to move the brake line manifold which is bolted on to the axle.

As I see it, it serves no purpose to move it!

Am I missing something? Why do I need to move it?

if it dont interfere with the mounting of the bellows, or risk rubbing on them, and the air lines are away from it; then why would you move it.....

i fitted a set to my Ducato and the only thing that needed moving were the bump stops which were replaced by the air springs..

I've fitted it to a 2016 chausson on a transit base..it has the wide track axel...didn't have to move the brake manifold.. i don't even recall it been mentioned in my instructions..if i can find them ill have a look..

Thanks Mine looks similar but not exactly the same.

As suggested I’ll do a test fit and hopefully it won’t foul (doesn’t look like it will).
