    One other thing I did I haven’t mentioned yet….  I turned down 4 center blocks and slid them over the torsions and pushed them 1/2 way in..  hoping to add some spring?????  Less flex?

    Holding good thoughts for your surgery. Wish I lived close enough to help around the shop while you heal up.

    I’m really stoked on these!!!  I just haven’t had a reason to go anywhere yet!!!

    i f do I think the tripples will be easier to work on than the stock ones..🤫. You won’t have that lower big gear upper bearing clearance problem and the outer cover should come off easy 🤫💋🤫😎👀👀😎

    For something that is completely new in VW Bus suspension ever, I feel like it’s still a bit of a Government secret….. I drove it, felt like driving a stock big tire Bus except noticeably higher!!! Maybe smoother in the redux than my Buses? Anyways, it’s Real and works. Did anybody else stick one together? It raises a Bus 3 to 6” higher than stock depending on tires I think? Kinda a Big Deal!!!!😀😀😀😀😀
