Hi,

I am looking to change the wheels to 15inch and change the suspension to allow it to happen.

Can any one offer advice and how to do it. Or even recommend someone to do the work on the North side of Brisbane

I look forward to your responses and would muchly appreciate your advices.

Sorry I can't suggest anyone who will do the job but I can suggest that whoever you get make sure they provide an engineering certificate. Otherwise registration and insurance will b almost impossible to get. And without the compliance documentation yr insurance company can and will void yr insurance in the event of an accident.

Remember too you may need to change the axles.

Because

Most axles intended for 14 inch wheels and below require derating for larger wheels like 15s........by the time the axle is derated it may not have sufficient load carrying capacity.

Hi Craig,
Caboolture Caravan Repairs are very good at modifications, not cheap, but seem to know what can and can't be done correctly. They are usually flat out, so you may have to be patient.
