Looking for conversion kit

Postby johnm » Wed Nov 29, 2017 10:51 am

Hello everyone,

I'm new on the forum. I have a Mark VII and it looks like I need a rear conversion kit. I'm looking at StrutsNThings website and I have looked at Arnott but is there any other companies out there I can look at before I place my order with Strutsnthing. Don't get me wrong Arnott and Strutsnthings have been great with their information. Their prices are a little bit higher then ebay or amazon but looks like great quality parts but just want to look around before ordering. Thanks!

Arnott is best bang for your buck if converting to springs - beefy spring perches and i think a great warranty. You get what you pay for. I wouldn't cheap out on suspension parts. Though I'd also advise to keep air suspension if possible. It isn't that hard to maintain once you know how it works, and separates our cars from most everything else on the road. Arnott also makes replacement air springs.

Any reason you're converting as opposed to replacing?

I'm converting because the air bags have been an issue, so my mechanic stated to convert would be an idea, which I agreed. I did order from Strutsnthings, so Thanks for your reply.

I just noticed the other day, that whoever did the conversion on mine(bought that way), didn't put any spring perches in. The rear spring shifted, and the body is sitting on one of them, raising that side of the car about an inch. Be sure it's done right, while it's apart. I'm not sure if the perches would be included in all kits. Just a friendly heads up.
