For Sale is a very nice Sportsmobile Van. Extended Body with the "50" interior layout that maximizes living space and storage space. This is a true "West Coast" vehicle that's barely never been east of Idaho.
The vehicle has been used regularly but never abused - which is actually a good thing because the diesel appliances seem to be more reliable with regular use. All features and both the diesel furnace and water heater work flawlessly.
This van has never been "chipped", never been in an accident and is NOT a salvage title or anything like that.

$72,500

G'day,

Do you have leaf or coil springs on front & rear?

How much the lift 4, 5 or 6 inch lift?

What model number are Bilstein Shocks please?

Can I ask for picture of front springs & shockabsorber please?

My brother-in--law wants a Ford Sportsmobile like mine.

Cheers Doug

Hi Doug.

The Deaver suspension included new leaf spring packs front and rear and custom/matched valves based on the weight of the van.

The front has 10 leafs (or is it leaves?) in the front and 12 in the rear. I couldn't find any numbers on the shocks or reservoirs that might help indicate the settings. If its that important to a buyer I could easily call Deaver and get the finer details.

The lift is the "stock" lift from SMB so I'm not sure how much they did on this model year. I would be surprised if its more than 4" but I am not an expert in such things.

Someone on the forum here might know what the standard setup was like for an SMB 4WD van (as opposed to Quigly 4WD)

Below is a picture of the front setup showing shock, res and springs. Sorry for the mud, the detailer is coming tomorrow to freshen things up a bit.

NOTE: Anyone that has ridden in the "normal" SMB setup at the time knows that it was a bone crushing, kidney pounding experience. The Deaver spring pack was, quite simply, the single best $10k we spent on the entire van since our normal travel included very little true "4wd travel" but lots of gravel roads and washboards that would have left us going to the dentist to get fillings replaced. This suspension makes the van drivable at good speeds over uneven terrain. A buyer of a similar rig WITHOUT this upgrade may be disappointed.

The standard Deaver setup was Bilsteins 5165 series. The were not really custom-valved but did come with the most aggressive damping profile from Deaver.

25-177503, 360/80 linear (Front)
25-177473, 360/240 digressive (rear)

I've toyed with changing the valving and going to 400/100 linear profile. Gernerally, digressive is best suited for daily paved roads and linear is best for non-paved roads.

Either way, Deaver springs are a huge upgrade to the van. Good luck with your sale and hope you stick around on the forum!
