-The Stage 2 kit is for 4x4 Sprinter Vans weighing under 7,800 lbs and is for owners who are happy with the current ride height / stance of their vehicle. There is no ride height increase with this kit.
-To determine the actual weight of your vehicle, go to your local landfill to utilize their scale or use the CAT Scale Locator tool here:
-If you have a Winnebago Revel and are not planning to add a lot of additional weight in accessories or gear, then this is a good kit for you!
-The Stage 2 kit utilizes a non-adjustable monotube front shock and a fully adjustable piggy back SP2 3.3 Fast Adjust rear shock for vans seeing significant weight swings in the rear. The Fast Adjust rear shocks allow you to easily soften up the rear suspension for extended dirt road travel or firm it up for windy days and long highway stretches for sports car like handling.
-The Stage 2 kit includes the following components:
- Front Falcon 2.315" Monotube shocks.
- Front 4x4 Sprinter Sumo Springs
- Rear Falcon 2.315" piggy back SP2 3.3 Fast Adjust Shocks
- Dust boots for all 4 shocks.
- All necessary hardware and instructions for a simple installation
The Stage 2 Van Compass suspension package transforms the Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 from a violently swaying and lumbering cargo van into a vehicle with true German luxury car feeling and control both on and offroad. Vehicle control and suspension compliance are the two areas of ride quality we focused on when we engineered this kit. Each shock is tuned specifically for YOUR vehicle’s weight and intended purpose. Designed exclusively for 4x4 Sprinter vans running at a weight under 7800lbs to smooth out the harshness experienced on washboard roads and sharp, abrupt impacts.
The Stage 2 kit does not change the vehicle ride height. It retains the factory suspension geometry which is critical for safe emergency lane change procedures as well as off-road performance. While other kits on the market force the van up 2” in ride height and sacrifice critical down travel in order to gain front spring rate, the Stage 2 kit utilizes a front sumo spring to accomplish the same thing without maxing out the limits of your van’s front suspension. This means control arm angles, axle shaft and steering angles stay neutral and your van retains it’s ability to articulate and keep it’s tires planted on the ground while traversing rough forest roads. The front sumo spring greatly helps with front stability and reducing harsh bottoming of the front suspension without sacrificing suspension travel. It optimizes your van’s front suspension and properly loads the chassis in an area designed to hold a spring load. Paired with a tuned Falcon monotube front shock and the original Van Compass secondary shock mounting bracketry, your Sprinter will have a sporty but compliant feeling the way a Mercedes Benz vehicle should.
The last unique feature of the Stage 2 kit is the fully adjustable Falcon Piggyback Reservoir SP2 3.3 Fast Adjust Shocks. These shocks have a MASSIVE range of compression adjustment at the simple flip of a knob. With the large red Fast Adjust knob, placed in an easy to access spot you will definitely take advantage of the adjustment features of these shocks. Flip the knob to position 1 (the softest setting) for dirt road travel. Set the knob to position 2 and utilize the micro dial to set the shocks for everyday comfort. This is your van’s every day normal running around town setting. Flip the knob to position 3 (the firmest setting) for when the van is loaded up with cargo and gear for a big trip. Cross wind sway, poor cornering stability, low speed rocking and harshness are a thing of the past with the Van Compass Stage 2 kit installed!
NOTE: The Falcon 3.3 SP2 Fast Adjust rear shocks are NOT compatible with Sumo Spring Rebel series of springs, specifically Sumo Spring part numbers: SSR-327-47-2 and SSR-327-40-2 There is a Sumo Spring bracket associated with those kits which makes contact with the large shock body of the Falcon shocks.
NOTE - Some 2019+ Vans with rear A/C are not compatible with our front shock mounts. Please look in the passenger wheel well for a/c lines under the plastic fender liner. Winnebago Revels do not have the a/c line run here.
Simple installation with basic hand tools.
