Sprinter 144" replacement shocks

Wondering if it's time to proactively consider replacing the shocks on our 144" smb 2014 sprinter w/80k miles?
Agile w/rip kit or Bilstiens?

A bit more coin, but go with the Agile kit

The Agile or Van Compass kits are the best, but going with Bilstein B6 (if you can find 'em) would be a cheaper solution. I went with B4s and the Hellwig anti-sway bar and am pleased with the result on my 2011 SMB hightop 2500.

Agile Sprinter RIP

We had the Agile RIP installed on our 2019 Sprinter 4x4 and love it.
With it we got about a 2 lift but it stopped the sway and really improved the overall driving experience

Thanks for the info.

I had Agile install the full Rip kit and also changed the strut to the Koni adjustable. Changed out at 15,000 now have 45,000 huge difference and well worth the expense
.
I have a 2016 4x4 144.

I am going on Week #10 since placing the order with Van compass. For the stage 3 kit. Still no delivery date confirmation.

Have you called them? I know when I dropped in in July they were swamped with orders and having some supply issues (isn't everyone?). Mark and Rob are good guys.

Was not able to call them directly. But, was able to reach out thru e-mail. Andy responded very quickly. Was not able to get a date or information which front struts will be shipping with my kit. When I placed my order my dealer told me the B4 were on back order. So I asked for the B6 upgrade. Andy would not answer and told me to contact my dealer again.
So still in limbo at the moment.

Received the Van Compass stage 3 and have had it all installed for the last month. What a Hugh difference on the road and back roads. Getting blown around on the highway also has disappeared. Very happy with the over all performance. I do wish I had added the mini rear spring pack from Van compass. Could have used a little more lift in the rear.
