Springs.

The iveco daily has available helper springs for those of us that believe that if it's on its gone.

You can get 8 frickin leafs :shock: we have them on the wagons in work.

They were 460 at purchase them down plated then extra springs added.

Now then, I think the chassis on the 460 is stronger but I'm not sure.

Can anyone give any comparison for the transit chassis version? They only seem to have 2+1 springs.

I wonder if the iveco ones would fit? :shock:

they will certainly be half a tone heavier
i remember when i was a little girl the little ones like road runners had single leaf up to 10 tonne
6 legger constructors were big heavy fookers like those
must of spent 6 months on the frame line fitting those c***s
on the heavy line not the ladies lightweight line either :P
so why have lots of little ones and not one big one
460 is only a baby one :?
