      • I think I'm about to get this Dobinsons kit (40mm lift) installed:

        - Front: C59-352 springs (50-100Kg), IMS59-50700 internal monotube
        - Rear: C59-327 springs (100-300Kg), IMS59-50701 internal monotube

        The main weight I have: TJM outback steel bullbar, dual battery, Drifta drawers (and I leave a bit of hear in them) in the back. No winch. Also: roof rack, stainless steel water tank at back, steel side steps.

        Before I buy, I thought I'd see if anyone will tell me I'm making a mistake? :-)

        I know the Bilstein/Dobinson combo is the favourite, but I like the idea of getting it done at the one place, and the Dobinsons in Adelaide seems well regarded.

        I was also thinking of OME too, but Dobinsons seems to have a better suited package.

        This is the Dobinsons catalogue for the Prado:



        • Hey Grinbot
          I've got nearly the same set-up as you in terms of accessories (no water tank or side steps) and I put the same Dobinsons kit you've listed in a couple of years ago. Haven't looked back, it's perfect for my needs. I found that before I installed some (Drifta) drawers it was a bit of a rough ride when unloaded, but when there's gear in the back it settles really nicely and the ride is great.
          If I had my time again i'd install the same. That's my two cents anyway.


          • Thanks TuesdayMarky, that is music to my ears.

              Over 3k from memory, but I was getting a lot of work done at the same time so the figure could be wrong.
