hello, has any of you good folk any experience of upgraded front suspension on a fairly new campervan , thinking along the lines of a VB Suspension kit. Front end suffers from under steer.

Hi Mike p
I had comfort springs fitted By SAP in Doncaster on my 2015 A class in 2016 superb Job and it made an incredible difference. Lifted the front end by approximately 2in and a softer front end ride. Worth every penny of the then £600 cost.

Hi I had a Autosleeper Warwick Duo for three years before my Pilote, it was a great MH apart from being to cold for winter touring.

Tyre pressures can be a major factor in relation to handling , as can ride height .

Before you spend the dosh, weigh the front axle in touring trim OR at least with a full tank of fuel + driver and passenger.

Then obtain the correct tyre pressure from the tyre manufacturer. I've got an A class and run the front at 45psi.

Thanks, we have found a weigh bridge locally and will be doing as suggested this week
