Thumbs up Doblo Extra capacity

Anyone know about these? Im after upgrading the cargo to take the extra capacity load of I think 700kgish. What parts are different apart from the obvious rear leaf springs which are 106 +vat each.

Re: Doblo Extra capacity

Problem sorted!
Springs are heavier duty, now purchased from fiat with a nice discount 217 inc vat. Bump stops are also heavier duty about 40 inc vat.
Sorts out the ride height if your doblos sagging a bit and also allows a payload of 730kg plus driver rather than 550kg plus driver as standard. Thats it as far as I know?

Talking Re: Doblo Extra capacity

Hi mate I`ve noticed you have uprated you`re springs, I have fitted some race seats in the boot and just wondered if you reackon it would be a good idea to uprate the springs for the extra weight? Also i am running it around on Sixteen stilo alloys with 15mm spacers and some times the wheels rub but i think that is because the offside rear bump stop has perished? any Idea`s?

Re: Doblo Extra capacity

Yes bumpstops do seem to be a problem, you can get 3 different sorts.
The biggest are for the uprated springs which have been great. (now on for three months) Much better ride height and no bottoming out despite carrrying about 600kg. Well worth it if you are carrying weight. Not cheap though.
