Might be quicker for you to first point out when anyone has said it was binding?
I’m looking forward to hearing about the VanCompass kit works out for folks in practice AND equally excited for the UJoint kit too.
If UJoint can deliver on not loosing down travel that will be rad
This reads a bit confusing and I want to clarify....
Y’all have first hand experience putting an F150 locker in 2020 Transit and then testing the AWD system?
Could you go into a bit more detail on how the AWD system behaves with it locked & unlocked?
Through the grapevine I heard the UJoint lift kit will be 3” lift and not loose any down travel.
Glad to have all these options and the Transit to get aftermarket love like the Sprinter so comprehensively has
Haha! I can’t agree with your take on leaving it stock being proper but now we know how you feel ;)
But yeah for $1000 it’s sounding like a good jam if you wanna run that next tire size up, 245/75, which I for sure do!
The Tacoma diff drop was simply an example of what happens long term to a vehicle when you keep less than ideal CV angle
So what y’all found is if you want to run a 245/75 ~30.5” tire then stock CV angle looks dialed? The stock Transit tires are 28”.
But if you’re wanting to go 33” then high...
Yes, but that bad CV angle could extrapolate issues is what I was after. Why risk it in a 50k van? We know what happens to Tacoma’s
Personally I’m waiting for what UJoint is offering before making a choice. But I am totally pumped to hear how this VanCompass kit plays out long term for folks
First off I'm glad ya'll are around and make stuff for the Transits!
And I'm totally down for being being wrong BUT it seems really wild to me to NOT invest in the best lift kit on a brand new $50,0000 van....feels like the wrong place and time to save money. I believe that sentiment is...
Question I would have about the Van Compass kit:
Are the CV's gonna wear out every 20k miles now? For instance, you don’t have to do a diff drop when you lift a Tacoma, but it sure makes the inner cv joints last longer if you do
VanCompass has some updates on their AWD lift:
Sounds like they are doing a new 1" coil lift spring + 3/4" strut spacer with built in camber correction. No custom CV's needed with their approach.
$1000 for their kit WITH Bilesten B6 struts
They also are gonna have two coil spring rates
There isn’t a sweeping size limitation, each site is unique, range is between 20-40’ or so
But 24’ is prob a fine sweet spot. Short enough for most of ‘em and Pacific Coast Highway and such
Also why am I replying on a post for a 200k rig?! 🙃
