    Hey Neil,

    I'm actually in the process of getting some load-deflection data for the progressive coils, which will greatly assist in terms of ride height calculations. I'll be able to discuss their properties more once I get this data.

    Yes OME coils used to be made by King. I'm not sure what the current arrangement is.

    Dobinsons coils do tend to display more continuous settling compared to Kings, which suggests they haven't been scragged enough.

    More on this later!

    Hey Samo86. I have the foam cell in our Prado and love em. We have the constant load springs too. They are great and worth the money, even though they are priced really well. Cheers

    Hi Whitey,

    Unless I miss something one question regarding the front struts you are working on doesn't seem to be asked/answered - open/closed lengths. Both 45710FE and 45750FE are too short to be used in 2" lifted setups regardless of valving. Could you comment on this please? Also, how is the development going? Any indication on when the group buy may start?

    Hey FJSA,

    Please note that the lengths in the Ironman catalogue do not include the shroud spacer. The real lengths of the 45710FE are 433-565mm. You can safely space this down to 570mm which is what I will do with my own struts.

    I can't put a firm date on when the group buy will start, as the strut valving is still being finalised, and I need to field test it.

    I can't rush what is a complicated valving process. It has taken much longer than I originally anticipated, but hopefully in the next few weeks everything will be sorted out and the buy can begin!

    Ok, thanks Mark. Now this makes sense. How about 45682FEC for the rear? Is it really 383-618 as the catalogue says? Thanks.

    Hey,

    Rear lengths are correct. Closed is actually a bit more like 380mm for the 45682.

    Hey all,

    For all those long suffering Ironman fans out there, the valving has finally been sorted, and this pair of big bad boys just arrived;



    I'll get them on my Prado this weekend and field test them asap so we can get this group buy rolling!

    I will write a review on them with all pertinent information before the group buy starts.
