T4 Syncro suspension lift

T4 Syncro suspension lift
Hi
New to the forum, new to VW Syncro's
Just bought a T4 Syncro, with a view to building a nice overland/touring vehicle.
Currently having the vehicle reconditioned from top to bottom, to make it reliable.
Not planning any serious offroading, rather touring the country and sometimes getting off the beaten track.
I need advice in terms of the best/most affordable way to raise the suspension so I can run larger tyres to improve the offroad capability.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Regards
Sean

RE: T4 Syncro suspension lift
I have uprated suspension in my T4 and have got 235/75/15 tyres. They are unable to fit without having to roll out the wheel arches etc. I would recommend rather fitting 215/75/15. I do have an extra set of uprated springs and diff spacers if your interested.

Hi Jimmy
Thanks for your response.
How much of a lift would that provide, and what would you want for the diff spacers & uprated springs?
