Vehicle check after 6000 Km on African roads

As I check every day the wheels and chassis of our Sprinter, I found that both distance blocks of our rear suspension had moved. No surprise after 6000 Km on African roads and no real problem, but needed to be fixed before breakfast. And yes, Airfilter change and oil check! Let’s start ….
