    Hi guys,

    I have a 2009 mercedes sprinter that I am converting to camper. I am looking for some info on changing out the front parabolic spring and fitting air suspension struts. Would there be any mercedes parts that may be used or not.

    Cheers

    Putting quad springs on the back and replacing the anti-sway bars with larger diameter ones makes a huge difference.
    I’ve a friend with a 518 converted and it transformed the handling

    Are the sprinter Ambulances not fitted with air suspension? Not sure if air in front of them but rear is. Although I think they are twin wheel? Im sure plenty broke around the country?

    The ambulance vans are rear air suspension.
