GoWesty-designed progressive suspension lift kit for your 2WD T3/T25/Vanagon.
One PAIR of GoWesty-designed progressive FRONT 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 Go Westy’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?”
1.5″ LIFT: These springs will provide roughly a 1.5″ suspension lift for all 1980-91 T3/T25/Vanagon 2WD campers. If you have the much lighter hard-top van (or single/double cab truck), these springs will provide too much lift for your suspension geometry. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
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. Each set of lifting springs comes with our ball joint spacer kit, which will help with your alignment. 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 labor excluded.
This kit includes everything you need to get that look and practicality you need.
- One pair of front lift springs
- One pair of rear lift springs
- One front wishbone spacer
- Two 2WD Adventure Camper door decals
- One front Adventure Camper decal.
How we find using Gowesty springs personally at CampervanCulture.com,
Before we set up Campervan Culture LTD we were customers just like you. Spacers and other spring offerings from other vendors that we tried as customers ranged from springs that collapsed in 18 months after fitting to shock absorbers dumping oil within months.. For a while we gave spacers a go on stock VW suspention but that didn’t allow the full benefit of a spring matched to the whole lift and the ride was quite frankly awful!
We could stock any suspension sets we want, but we stock Gowesty suspension as we believe it to be the absolute best there is. If there was something better it would be fitted to our own vans instead of the Gowesty suspension we have on them. Doing your research is important and we can save you the expense of trying out other stuff and that falling way short of the mark.
Try before you buy? Why not.. We have two vans right here at CVC HQ in South London/Surrey boarder or down in the Brighton/Shoreham area that we can take you for a spin in if you are in our area any time. This way you can make your own mind up and buy with confidence.
How we found the fitting at CampervanCulture.com,
Fitting isn’t exactly rocket science, the rear is very easy and can be done in around half an hour by anyone on your drive way at home and only requires two 19mm spanners! The front is a bit more involved but with a decent set of spring compressors that you can borrow, buy or rent from any decent tool shop or plant hire place it wasn’t hard to do. Hell, we even made a video of us doing it at home so you can see for yourself….
