Our Stage 5 kit is our ultimate 2WD for owners who want it all: improved stability with a better ride, added ground clearance from a more aggressive stance, and adjustability to adapt the handling to many payload and terrain conditions. Great for adventure vans that need a total transformation into off grid explorers! 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 B6 Camper Tune front strut. Bilstein struts utilize a unique, velocity sensitive, digressive piston which perfectly blends stability and compliance in a heavy duty damper built to last. The Sumo Spring front replacement bump stop adds improved spring progression and bottom out resistance, further 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 5 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 5 kit installed!

We’ve prepared this guides to help with tire choices for your van. Generally, the largest compatible diameter and widths are listed, other sizes may fit. Actual size varies by manufacturer, wheel choice, and inflation pressure. Tire size selection will vary by manufacturer and tread pattern, and tires with more aggressive tread or aggressive sidewalls may have more fitment issues. Specific trimming instructions are noted in most of our lift kit’s instructions. All 2019+ vans will require our Big Tire Mud Flap Relocation kit for tires larger than stock, as the wheel wells pinch inward and restrict fitment. Van Compass is not responsible for fitment issues.
This calculator is one of the best we’ve found, and very helpful for comparisons between different tire sizes. Actual size varies by manufacturer, wheel choice, and inflation pressure. Always consult your tire shop before purchasing wheels or tires.
