  • Suspension upgrade - Nube advice

    I have looked through the database and I am a bit confused (sorry nuby to suspension).

    I have a 2012 150 diesel with ARB steel bar, lights and second battery on front and fridge and fridge slide (no draws) on back plus tow camper TBW 120kg.

    I have been quoted the following for suspension replacement
    • Front - Bilstein B6 (BE5 A712) King Springs (KTFR 101H - 50-100kg)
    • Rear - Bilstein B6 (24-238830) King springs (KTFR101HD - 100-250kg)
    • Firestone Air bag kit

    I am trying to understand if this combination works and how this compares with what seems to be preference in forum posts for the Bilstein/Dobinson combination

    Any thoughts appreciated

    Consider changing the front BE5-A712 to BE5-D563
    I think the rear part number coil should be KTRR-102HD. However, the HD is too stiff for your daily load of just the fridge. As you are installing the air bags anyway, go for the KTRR-102.

        Hard to go past Zordo in Brisbane for suspension pricing, he can send them interstate too without issue.

            $2,785 supply and install. PM me if you want the company - Sydney based. I have not gone ahead yet - still trying to work through options. Any reason for the PolyAir?

              FYI Zordo’s price was $1850 supply only August last year, it is not a hard job to install perhaps see if a local mechanic will do the install for you.
              Who knows letting them know about Zordo might sweeten the pot.
