Full 4 corner air.

I changed from an alko tag which was like driving on rails, nothing gave it a side wobble. The van I now have is an extra high panal van on the fiat maxi chassis with rear leaf spring suspension. I can now feel side winds, nothing major but I believe air suspension will help. I was also told that leaf springs flatten over time so it can only get worse.

I have a Glide Rite system, wished I had fitted it sooner, it makes leveling up a doddle. It is not so sophisticated as the E&P system and therefore very much cheaper. To my mind a simple system is all that is required and mine has preformed faultlessly for the past 3 years.

I couldn't find any photos of the VB full air system on a Fiat chassis on the WWW the photos are all on the Alko.
I discussed this with Mick at SAP. I have given him permission to take comprehensive installation photos of the install as it goes on my van. I will add the photos once they are done. My kit is on order now so watch this space.

Hi, I would be interested in seeing any photos of a hydraulic levelling system install on fiat ducato. I am interested in a system and the manufacturers/ installers say they use original bolting holes in the chassis. A quick look underneath mine and I cannot possibly imagine where they can be bolted. I am struggling to find any install picture on the web.

So you decided to go ahead with it then, good stuff, looking forward to seeing what difference it makes.

Best I've got I'm afraid. This is on a Fiat Ducato Tag Axle.

This is an Alko chassis not a Fiat.

Hi MatB

The rear Legs bolt on to the chassis split section just behind the rear wheels. The front pair slot (awkwardly) inside the chassis. L/H near fuel tank & R/H along side heat shield.
Pictures close up attached of the front and one rear. Hope they make sense.

Cheers

Will
