Don’t forget if you change the suspension setup standard shocks may no longer be adequate, longer shocks may be required depending on how much lift is given and how much extra articulation is gained.

Various alternative shocks are available, either longer shocks designed for the vehicle or shocks off a few other vehicles also fit.

unfortunately if the arch lip is that rotten then the main arch behind it is probably not going to be too healthy either.

How good is your welding? if you can weld then it's not too hard to repair, if not then it might be best to buy a whoe new wing but they are quite pricey.

I believe you can use the springs from the Suzuki carry van? Apparently they are a straight swap and readily available? Happy to be corrected if that's not the case 😊

Depends what you are trying to achieve?

A common swap is RUF (rear springs up front) and bedford rascal spring on the rear.

On mine my springs seemed real saggy and they sit just negative of flat, so I'm guessing they are no good? I was looking into replacements, not looking for anymore lift just to replace all 4 springs. The Bedford rascal springs came up as a straight swap option on all 4 corners.
