Ford Transits from 1984 to 2013 all have different leaf spring set up. If your Transit is FWD or RWD, LWB, SWB we have a kit to fit. After some years of having the weight of all the motorhome/camper equipment sat over the rear of these old vehicles. The leaf springs start to bend the opposite direction to the way they should. Please see below a customers motorhome before & after.
We offer a fitting service here in Cheshire. However if we are too far away from you why not check out our fitting agents list to see if there is a fitter near to you. You will find this list on the "Fitting Agents in the UK" page
This is our own design owned by Custom Campers UK. If your Ford Transit motorhome,camper, van or recovery truck suffers from rear end sag. Custom Campers UK have developed an assister that will lift and impove ride. These are a very heavy duty pair of coil springs that fit in between the chassis and axle. They are not like other brands. These will not wear, break or weaken. We supply this kit as a D.I.Y kit or we can fit them for you. I have the same kit fitted to my Talbot motorhome which are over 3 years old now.
As you can see we use very strong coil springs compared to others. Each coil spring is roughly rated at 700kgs .
The rear of motorhomes,campers do suffer with all the weight of the equipment on board. The vehicle and leaf springs were never designed to have the constant weight sitting over the rear axle.
This is after the Spring assister kit was fitted to my Talbot. As you can see it fits between the axle and the chassis. Note the correct bend in the leaf spring now.
This photo was taken before the kit was fitted. The leaf springs are bending the oppisite direction.
Our kits include.
2 x coil spring max load of 700kgs each.
4 x coil cups
1 x cross member(Talbot/Boxer/Relay/Iveco/Mercedes Sprinter/crafter. only)
If your Transit is Front wheel drive SWB van and has a square axle. Your kit comes with 4 coil springs. Each spring is rated at 350 kgs. Also this kit can be ajusted.
