whats your reason for the raise is it ground clearance or a weight issue , i have a camping trailer my springs have sagged due to , to much weight , i am simply getting the springs bent up 2 inches and an extra leaf put on and re hardened going to cost about $200

Ray, there are a few options but it depends on what type of suspension you currently have. What have you got?

The aussie ALKO are torsional rubber bush, I'm assuming the yankee version is the same.

The only way (that I'm aware of) to raise your van is to purchase a drop axle from ALKO.

ray

if you have leaf springs the easiest way to raise your van is to put the springs on top of the axle
