If you have raised the suspension on your van, you may well find the knock effect is the you require rear shock extensions and front ball joint spacers.
Here we have the rear shock extenders, which attach to the campers rear swing arm, and lift the syncro lower shock mount – which avoids the syncro rear shock topping out. Available from www.futbus.com.
Also, up front we have fitted syncro specific upper ball joint spacers, there several different suppliers out there, these ones also came from futbus.com, they are the same as available at gowesty.com
Both of these have been on the Westfalia for a few thousand miles now, and have been no problem at all. Don’t forget, if you have raised the suspension on your Syncro to get the alignment / geometry checked over!
Measuring up a T25 / T3 / Vanagon Syncro Westfalia for the difference in rear height from left to right. Raising slightly and correcting that infamous “Westy Lean”,
There are various options to raise or correct the height on the rear of a Vanagon T25 T3 syncro, we have chosen the home DIY option. Alternatively we stock our own aluminium rear plate and stock the Gowesty rear lift spacer here and here.
We will be away making a new video travel series from 25th of July - 26th of August. The destination this time is the far north in attempt to cross the Arctic Circle. The shop will be closed while we are away but Dan will still be around chomping through a long list of stuff ready for us to re open after the trip. Thank you all for the support you show us when buying from our shop, you guys make these video travel series happen.
