Hi, newbie here posting from the UK.
Hope I'm posting in the correct section.
Sorry I don't actually have a van, I have a 1973 Minnie Winnie on a B300 van chassis, so I think I'm half groovy at least
Anyway, to the point of my post which is a vanning type thing - I'm looking for ways to reduce front end road noise. I saw that the 1978 model year introduced front coil spring isolators over the top of the springs to reduce road noise (not fitted at all pre-78), so I thought I'd get some and do a retro fit. Problem is I can't find any info. listed anywhere except for much later chassis types, eg. Rockauto doesn't even list any isolators for '78 -->
So, has anyone put isolators on a pre-78 B series and if so can you tell me what fits? Or should I just measure the springs and go for something generic of the appropriate diameter (minimum extra lift) ?
I should mention that the earlier van based motorhomes (like mine) used the lighter front axle (even though it has duallies in the rear). Not sure if that makes a difference to spring size, but it does mean my front springs are more likely to be the same as all your vans out there.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
