One PAIR of GoWesty-designed progressive REAR springs for your 2WD T3/T25/Vanagon.
These springs are an exclusive GoWesty design. They are made in America by a leading automotive spring manufacturer that supplies many aftermarket companies. They feature an ultra-modern, hot wound (just like the OEM springs), fully progressive design based on the manufacturer’s knowledge and GoWesty’s personal R&D over the past decade. They may look unusual, but they work. For the complete story on these springs, and a thorough explanation as to why they are the way to go, click here. Please click here for an informative response to the oft-asked question, “If I add lifting springs, do I have to install a longer shock?”
Now you have a decision to make: Do you choose the ZERO lift springs, or the 1.5″ lift springs?
ZERO LIFT: These are designed as a direct replacement for all 1986-91 T3/T25 2WD campers, and will maintain your factory ride height. If you have the much lighter hard-top T3/T25 (or single/double cab truck), you will see a slight suspension lift of up to 1.5″. If you have an engine conversion that has a different weight or weight distribution—something other than the T3/T25 water-boxer engine – your T3/T25 may not sit level. These springs are NOT designed to compensate for vans with engine conversions.
1.5″ LIFT: These springs will provide roughly a 1.5″ suspension lift for all 1986-91 T3/T25 2WD campers. If you have the much lighter hard-top T3/T25 (or single/double cab truck), these springs will provide too much lift for your suspension geometry. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! If you have an engine conversion that has a different weight or weight distribution—something other than the T3/T25 water-boxer engine — your van may not sit level. These springs are NOT designed to compensate for T3/T25 with engine conversions.

INSTALLATION NOTES: Does not require special tools to install. However, the installation of these springs is very difficult, even with a car hoist and all the correct tools. and requires a 4-wheel alignment after installation. GoWesty recommends that a professional workshop with alignment tools install these springs.
ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR LIFTING SPRINGS: If you have installed lifting springs (as opposed to zero-lift springs), you will need to have the front end re-aligned. It is important to note that our lifting springs will raise your van to its suspension limit—which means these springs are designed to get your vehicle as high as possible while still maintaining proper alignment specs. Please read this article for tips on correctly aligning your vehicle!
60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee: We are confident that you will love these springs. If you do not love the way they feel, you are free to return them anytime within the first 60 days for a 100% refund. Shipping & installation labour excluded.
