Iveco Daily 35C12 3.5t upgraded suspension

Iveco Daily 35C12 3.5t just bought one of these, put a chipbox on it and it pulls large load of chip no problems. My only issue is that the suspension is pretty weak.

Has anybody upgraded the suspension? did you do the front and back?

Any advice would be great.

the suspension is fine ,its the fact that yr over loading it you can have an extra leaf fitted to the rear but not the front as its a single leaf that goes from near side to of side

Have you weighed it with a load on??

Just up rating the springs will not make it legal.

Great trucks but they don't carry much before they're up to weight.

Or Midland Road Springs 0121 351 6229- I put these on mine on the back and it makes a big difference. The guy there knows his stuff, I think it is a pretty common mod.

Hi. We've got a 35 c14 really like it but loads up really quick with weight. I put 7 leaf springs on the rear and that keeps the can nice and level when loaded. I would be interested to find out what others have done to theirs.

Re: Iveco Daily 35C12 3.5t upgraded suspension

Just been quoted 1100 euro for 2 extra leafs from iveco France.
Could I do a round trip from sw France and get them fitted in the UK for less?
