Time to get a Change.
Bought this van in 2002. Saw it while driving in my truck.
The regulations in Netherlands changed for private owners . So I started building this Van in 2006 and make a Camper-Van off it.
Found AS.com and thought, I`am not the only (Dutch) guy how owns a Astro Van :rofl:
I`am not much of a speaker. So here the first pictures...

Bought in 2002.

Cool van.. Are you running that off propane or natural gas? If so, how's that working out for you? I know the in the Netherlands the price of petrol is either an arm or a leg.
Running on LPG. cost almost 1/3 less than petrol.
I get me 2 45 ltr tanks and mount them under the floor.

Upper Ball Joint Replace / Sway Bar linkage

Before



Clean the surface good for proper seating



Use only MOOG Parts.





Before U bolt everything together first cut the Sway-Linkage for easy acces.



Use a Pray-bar to get the Sway-bar up.
And mount the rest off the linkage.



Final Pic. Don`t forget to grease the Ball joints.

Someone made a mistake mounting the brake shoes I guess, time to fix it Bert ;)
There are two different sizes in one kit, if I remember correctly the large one goes on the front and the smaller one on the back.
Correct me if I'm wrong :D
