    Shockers



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    As the majority of motorhomes are used at or close to or at their maximum weight, what might be the mileage that would be considered to be a good point to replace the rear shock absorbers. My moho is on a Mk 7 Transit and I was wondering if there was an upgrade. I already have air assist so I am not looking for better stability more like improved damping. All observations welcome.T.I.A

    there are a wide range of upgraded shocks available for the Mk7 tranny - ranging for £30 to well over £100 - you can also get upgraded springs

    If you have air assist try playing around with different pressures until you get the desired ride
