    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.

                Best

                          Nice article here with a few shock comparison pics. The Bilsteins look like twigs next to the foam cell pros.

                            Hey Mark. just curious as to how those struts are adjusted. I can see that there is a bit to be turned. Can this be done on car? Loaded or unloaded? How does it lock into position? When we get them will they be pre-assembled like those in the photo with new top hats etc? Neil

                              There's no need for preassembly as you can assemble them on the vehicle. As a starting point, the bottom of the spring seat should replicate the same position as the OEM strut assuming that the choice of coil matches the accessories/weight.
