Has anyone ever thought of trying one of these add a leaf kits?  Only £50.
There is a post on here somewhere where someone has added an extra leaf to his leaf springs from a set of his old ones for the demountable.

one of the three bambi's i owned had the leaf spring stabiliser (added leaf) and this did help, but the extra springs i fitted to the 1.3 carry, improved the suspension handling brilliantly. and i wish i had done this to the other bambi's and the rascal van i had.

I may have ordered a spring set up from the states as well - due on the 27th!

It may not be as good as your system and it may not fit which is why i ordered the add a leaf as i get carried away with the camper.  For goodness sake dont tell SWMBO!
Could have paid for a round the world trip by now.

These springs look like they will work.

I presume that they are fitted between the rubber  bump-stop cone and the top of the leaf spring mounts, as do mine?

You will notice a hell off a difference !

Yes that's how they work - hopefully easy to fit - (famous last words!)
Then ive almost ticked off all the jobs (speakers, soundproofing, and finishing the leisure battery wiring left) and ill be forced to buy the Suzuki Carry van.
I can transfer them over to the new van all being well.

Best spring kit we used to fit were the MAD springs, don't know why they were called this.
They were a coil spring that fitted just behind the rear axle to leaf spring mounting point, and at the top end a bracket was fitted .
All part of the kit and very easy to fit.
Grayston springs used to supply them, but not sure if they are available now.
I did notice a similar product on E-bay, but they seemed to be twice the price I recall ever paying.
