    Really? The 120 MRR's are longer than the 150's now?

    Doesn't sound right (or good)

      • Hi,

        Koni apparently have some new shocks which they say is suitable for a Prado with a raised suspension. They include an adjustable rebound feature and are serviceable. Details below:

        Front Part No: 88-1712SP2 Max/Min: 560/432 mm
        Rear Part No: 90-5404L/RSP2 Max/Min: 617/391 mm


        I am considering getting these for my car as part of a 40mm lift. Does anyone have any experience with them? How is the off-road performance? The Max/Min specs for the front suspension seems a little short in travel. Any opinions?

        Cheers,
        Brad

        • Hey Brad,

          These lengths are an improvement over the first gen RAIDS, but the strut open length is still shortish, and the shock closed length is longish, and you'll prolly want to space your rear bumpstops a little.

          While the valving of the first gen struts was ok, the real question is if the very low rebound in the first gen rear shocks has been increased to a magnitude that is appropriate for off-road handling, otherwise you'll end up with a pogo stick in a loaded Prado!

          Best

            Ah, thank you for pointing that out, that was not an issue I had thought of. I'll see if Koni will provide any numbers on the compression+rebound of the shock.

            Picking out suspension for the car is taking a surprising amount of effort - nothing seems quite right for the job!
