Agree with the above on checking the wheel arches the annex and annex skirt, From memory the 14inch wheels have 10inch brakes and the 16 inch wheels ahve 12 inch brakes, someone more knowledgeable that I can comment on this, but if you have to change over your brakes, I think in SA you would need and engineering certificate and an RTA check which could set you back up to $1,000.
To get more ground clearance suggest spring over the axle to give you another 4 inches, but then again If I did it I would get an engineering certificate/RTA, becasue in case of accident insurance companiies have been known to follow up the manufacturer re your original van spec.
Re shocks, do a search, another thread a month or so ago on caravannersforum, gave the correct method of installing shocks and how not to do it, if its done incorrectly you could have major chassis problems.
I would also talk to Concept, a mate has a Concept and he has received good advice from them in the past.
