Re: New Bilstein Suspension by Mikem

For interest I'm sharing some photos of my 2005, 4.8 that I got back from Mikem Suspension today. I have had OME (2" lift) on a previous 4.8 and had the TJM XGS Gold that this one had on it. After much desktop research including looking at some options I saw in Australia I decided to go with the Bi...

:surprised: That is pretty :woo:

Did they also change the suspension bushes on the arms?
The front bushed were changed last year by Gtech (Pathfinder) as they were poked. Mikem had to change the bump stops on the front as the one was cracked.

Re: New Bilstein Suspension by Mikem

I must be honest though, I don't like the placement of the reservoir on the rear shocks here. I think they are a bit vulnerable... But you said you don't do the extreme stuff, so you should be fine. Thanks Peter. Pretty much sums up what Mikem explained to me. I agree with your view on their vulner...

Ant idea why the rear reservoir isnt mounted near the top, similar to the front ones?

I'm afraid I'm ignorant here.
Stand to be corrected but the reservoir has to be at the end of the stroke when compressed. As to why the reservoir is not mounted elsewhere... not sure so wont speculate.

Re: New Bilstein Suspension by Mikem

Those look really nice.. Would you mind elaborating on cost? Less than the OME 2" quote mega World - under 25k. Happy to share the invoice on a PM. The OME dont have the reservoir and i don't think are serviceable. (not in SA at least) I'm not clued up on suspension either, so what is the purpose o...
