      Hi Philbarb.
      The heater blower is available from GSF, there was a period of time when they became unavailable but I know they're back as I bought one quite recently.

            I like that idea would be cheaper than greyston would you be able to make some for me.

                I'm making 2 more sets that just bolt on the C15 swing arm in place of the ally bump stop.

                I guess I could make for the berlingo too once I have details.
                anyone interested then just PM and give contact details. £50inc P&P

                    All OK Phil,
                    I put a set of chromed assistors aside so now I have one left.

                      Hi Rio.
                      The springs look good, probably jacks the back up a bit higher than the "Mad" or "Graystons" springs. Just remember when you lift the back up you reduce the braking pressure to the rear brakes, with a Berlingo you'd probably not notice but with a C15, which has interesting brakes on a good day, you certainly would. You may need to adjust the compensator valve to get the brakes at the back to join the party!

                        c15 brakes

                        I did not think of the braking glad you brought it to my attention you are right they are not that good at the best of times. thanks again phil.

                          Hi Ant & Phil,

                          Yes I have adjusted the rear proportion valve and brakes all OK.

                          Anyone that buys them gets some instructions on fitting and to alter the valve, very simple screw to turn.

                          These black springs are 9 1/2 inch ones that are ideal for towing and improve the boy racer handling especialy on corners, no roll.

                            When fitting spring assistors, either shop bought or homemade would this be classed as a modification and do you need to advise your insurance company.

                            I know fitting snow tyres in winter, although improving safety puts up your insurance premium. Daft, but true !

                              You have a valid point but I think Ant would be best to answer.

                              I have 8 inch assisters on mine and it has improved the handling very much. The other day I tried some 9 1/4 inch and they're even better again but sold to Phil on this site.

                              So whilst the handling is improved an insurance firm may need to know or may not.
