Few upgrades are as critical to a vehicle as a tuned suspension package. Adventure in comfort and confidence with a Van Compass system tuned for your van and needs. The Stage 3 matches our innovative Opti-Rate rear leaf springs with the increased damper performance of our front and rear 2.1 Monotube shocks and front Sumo Spring upgrade. This system is intended for built out adventure vans, loaded work/play vans and Class B RV's that need a rear spring rate upgrade to counter build weight and correct rear sag that results in poor ride quality and wallowing handling. This kit can restore the ride height back to the original range, eliminates un-controlled swaying, and reduces harsh bottom out.
The Opti-Rate replacement leaf springs use a tunable preload system to change the spring rate that allows users to more closely dial in ride height and spring rate to their liking. Its clever design requires minimal tools to change rate once the springs are installed, and is designed to work on vehicles that spend their time at or well over GVWR.
Falcon's 2.1 Monotube Shocks represent the core upgrade to your Sprinter's handling. Built specifically to our tune specifications, they represent the culmination of years of accumulated knowledge, applied directly to the adventure van market. These shocks feature race inspired build quality, combined with functional components choices for real-world users. Aluminum bodies and hard chrome plated shafts ensure longevity and corrosion resistance. Internally, these shocks are tuned to our specifications in one of three weight ranges.
Our Stage 3 system retains the factory suspension geometry and transforms the Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 from a violently swaying and lumbering cargo van into a vehicle with true German luxury car feeling and control, both on and offroad. Vehicle control and suspension compliance are the two areas of ride quality we focused on when we engineered this kit, and the payoff is increased performance over any terrain while also improving handling for unexpected emergencies.
