Seems that the ride height looks lower then the 2006 model. Where the springs shorter? I prefer the ride height of a 2006. I was wondering if the spring length/rate might be different then the 05 and 06 Sprinter?

could be the tires on that particular one...or 15" wheels vs 16" or the van lived a hard life and all the springs are sagged?

I hadn't noticed any differences. Photo examples?

They just always seem a little lower, maybe the 158 wheelbases sag a little more. The 140's seem like they sit up a little higher.

Well you went from year differences to wheelbases.

Perhaps the vans you are comparing are a 3500 and a 2500. The 3500 has 15" rims(dually), the 2500 16".
