Converting air-suspension to springs (alternative springs)

Hi all.

New to the group,but had Citroens,Peugeots for around 30 years,and bought a WAV converted 2011 Expert Tepee LWB 2.0 HDi about a month ago,but the rear air suspension is rock hard,though working correctly,having new airbags 18 months ago and raises/lowers as it should.

I'm looking to convert to springs and given that i don't carry more than around 150kg in the rear, i was wondering if springs for a SWB or other vehicle maybe a more comfortable option ? Somebody mentioned C4 Grand Picasso springs,but lost the link.

Summing up,i need the space the Expert offers,but not the weight capacity,and can't live with it like it is,as most of my driving is on minor rural roads and it's an exhausting experience with the rear end crashing and banging over every little bump/hole roll

I'd very much appreciate any help,advice,thank you.

Nick

Re: Converting air-suspension to springs (alternative springs)

I switched my rear springs out for a set form a Synergie and it was so much nicer. This is for a Mk1 so I'm not sure how much it helps for a Mk2
