You have a 2002 van that you are unbodging you said. So why are you asking about the rear suspension on a 2007 van chassis.

You need to either increase or come of those meds Phil, I don't recall mentioning a 2007 van at all except the self build.

Maybe you should go back to your OP and put your specs on, 07 Ducato rear suspension, also stop trying to blame errors on predictive text, we know that you northerners(Leeds) have problems with the Queens English.

Hi Kev, we had air bags on the first van when we bought it. and I had it fitted to the second van. The mrs said at the time that it did not need air assist and that it was just me being me. After it was fitted we were driving along and she said is it me or is it a lot quieter in here?
The ride was definitely improved and it was also much quieter, well worth the money in my opinion.
I got the header meaning pre 07 by the way.

Kev, if its on an Alko chassis I assume it has an Alko axle and therefore wont it have Torsion bars rather than leaf springs. It shouldn't crash about. How does it sit at the rear? The wheel arch should be at the top of the tyre. Ours is on the Alko chassis (with the newer rear axle fitted 4 years ago) and it handles brilliantly with no crashing about.

I dont want to send alarm bells ringing but remember way back when my original Alko Axle failed as the bars started to snap? The van was visibly lower at the back end, the arch was almost down to the wheel trim. If its an Alko Chassis it should have been raised (both wheels off the ground at the same time) and greased pumped in every year. Do you know in the history if this has been done? If not get it looked at and done as this is what did for mine. I suspect it had never been done and two or three years of use from us without knowing about this requirement was enough to make the axle start to fail. I cant remember the cost to replace it but it was about £2800.

Oh sh*t, just thought that was one of kev's predictive text faults. Yes sorry Kev my mistake I suppose. Must increase dosage on those funny shaped ones
I do understand the symbols thanks eurojohn. I am of the generation not afraid to ask if we do not know or understand, hence my signature.
