Customers looking for maximum handling flexibility from their vans, need look no further than our Stage 3 system. Our tuned Falcon shocks smooth out the harshness experienced on washboard roads and shrug off abrupt impacts. Using our knowledge of suspension tuning, we're able to minimize side to side sway and balance out jarring impacts so that your van or motorhome maintains much better control and handles more predictably. When you are lifting or upgrading your Sprinter's suspension for a better ride, there is no better option than the Bilstein front strut. Bilstein struts utilize a unique, velocity sensitive, digressive piston which perfectly blends stability and compliance. The Sumo Spring front replacement bump stop adds improved spring progression and bottom out resistance, futher controlling swaying and jarring impacts. This is a great kit for light weight adventure vans, work vans and any van that sees a wide range of payload and terrain. Great for older vans that need new shocks to replace high mileage units. We spec each set of Falcon shocks to your van's weight, please be sure to weigh your van to order the correct shock damping. Vans that are near the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) may want to add additional rear suspension parts to reduce rear suspension sag and improve stability.

The cornerstone of our Stage 3 kit is the fully adjustable Falcon Piggyback Reservoir 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. Position 1, the softest setting, is optimized for rough dirt road travel. Setting the knob to position 2, and utilizing the micro dial to fine tune, sets the shocks for everyday comfort and is the preferred setting for everyday road going travel. This is your van’s every day normal running around town setting. Position 3, the firmest setting, will engage maximum stability for loaded highway travel and treacherous cross wind conditions. Cross wind sway, poor cornering stability, low speed rocking and harshness are a thing of the past with the Van Compass Stage 3 kit installed!
