At four and a quarter tons, we needed a booty lift, especially after adding our new bumpers from @backwoodsadventuremods
If you’ve been following our stories the last 24 hours, you know that as hardcore DIYers on a budget, we wanted to tackle this project ourselves.
After a bit of research, Mike decided adding sumo springs would help perk up our rear end.
And they did! Swipe to see for yourself! ➡️
They cost about $500 and with the right tools, shouldn’t take more than an hour to install.
However, we didn’t have the right tools, so we found a local auto shop who let us borrow their floor jack (Thanks Bucky’s!) Turns out the jack Mercedes provides isn’t great 🤨 We tried it with boards underneath but ultimately didn’t feel safe working under it.
Can’t wait to test these new springs out on some dirt roads!! We already feel less saggy!
Have you upgraded your suspension? What did you do? Do you like it?

This van is ready for a damn road trip. 🧡✨🚐
Four places set at the picnic table, three swimsuits drying in the sun, two blissfully happy teenagers, and one beautiful bus. 🚌💕 My cup of joy runneth over.
We finally after 7 nights on the incredible Oodnadatta Track reach the end and got our obligatory road conditions Marla, SA sign. 🤩
Such an insane experience that we would highly recommend to anyone set up for the rough outback tracks, it’s an adventure you’ll talk about for years to come! 👌🏼
After the rain cut our route up to Mt Dare in two, we decide getting to complete the entire Oodnadatta Track was far more awesome on second though. We shall hit up Mt Dare and Dalhousie when we cross the Simpson very soon 🌾.
