[Steering & Suspension] Raising the ride height
#1
Hi, 

I understand that a lots of people look to lower their vans, but I would like to raise the standard ride height by approx 80mm to cope with many of the rough farm and country tracks that I have to negotiate from time to time, can anyone help me with what I would need to do?

No doubt longer front springs and dampers/shock absorbers, but how would I deal with the rear of the van?

My van is a 2006 2.0ltr Hdi and any help or advice would be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

James.

80mm is a lot. The Peugeot version was available with a higher ride height and headlamp protectors but it was more cosmetic than off road. The rear of the van you would need to raise the height by adjusting the torsion bars, not an easy proposition. You can buy a reconditioned axle with the height preset from some suppliers if you get in touch with them before you order.
So where does this bit go then ?

Just in case you're not aware, search for "Dangel Berlingo" on Google and Youtube for some inspiration... e.g.

You can't get Dangel to convert your car(they only do factory new cars that's en route to dealers, I believe), but you might just find one at a breakers, and buy the parts of it.
