Top Drive Air Suspension for Comfort Manual rear Air Suspension for VW Crafter 2006-2017

Top Drive Air Suspension is an ideal addition to any commercial van or motorhome which is consistently heavily laden. It is an air assist which will return the ride height to where the manufacturer intended it to be, rather than down on the bump stops. This means your suspension will last longer and save you money in the long run.

Top Drive Air suspension systems have a choice of suspension feel from standard, comfort, super comfort and reinforced. The suspension feel is a compromise between road holding, support, road handling and ride comfort. The larger the air bag the more comfortable the ride due to the reduction of the internal air pressure, which can also reduce the wear on the air bag, enabling the unit to last longer without replacement. The lift attained on the suspension positions the shock absorber at the optimum height and therefore improves damping.
