As ek reg onthou het dit my 'n 30mm lift gegee en ry kwalitiet was baie beter. Het ook balljoint flip gedoen en schakels verleng. En dis ongelukkig hoe ver my kennis in die area strek... :redface:

Gents... I have heard alot of people speak and readva lit what people wrote on SUSPENSION upgrades and/or changes In my humble opinion one of the moste knowlegeable on Suspension is Mr Robert Hale of DUNE OFF ROAD.
They are the agents for CALMINI Suspensions but he goes far beyond that and they design and manufacture self.
Contact Robert at O 84 58O 8 eleven 4. You welcome to say i pasted him here...And get his opnion and maybe even a quote.
It wont bevlike 58 K from Ozzland for sure.

Daai R58k is wel vir 4-5" lift met al die benodighede...
Om 'n Patrol bakkie se suspensie lokaal te vervang met OME, TJM, ens.(2" lift), is by die R30k+....

There is a big difference in requirements between a 4" lift and a 2" lift.
The list mentioned by Fanus are the extra stuff required. Not worth it, unless you buy a model that already has it in (like Dirk's GQ from Grant).

But then look at what Christo Boegman does with hardly any lift, which begs the question if any money spent on lift is worth it...

Increasing the vehicles height aka lift, also increases the approach, break-over and departure angles...
Not saying 4" is the way to go, but 2" does help a bit.

This might be true on a patrol wagon, but I think the pickup needs all the help it can get... :wink:

Hulle het nie agterste shocks vir die patrol bakkie nie. net voorstes. (R3500 vir stel).

As ek so vinnig kyk na die pryse en kwotasies wat ek die laaste klomp maande ontvang het. Gaan dit omtrent 7k kos om shocks te vervang.
(Bilstein is bietjie goedkoper).

TJM - R7k
Bilstein, - R6k
RAW suspension - R6.6k
Ironman - R7.4k

So, indien enige van julle moet besluit tussen hierdie fabrikate, wat sou jy kies?
(P.S. Ek is baie gelukkig met die TJM wat in my 4.5 is....)
