Hi Guys. had a look at don kyatt today and was told by a rep that he could do a set of heavy duty terrain tamer springs with xgs big bore shocks for $850. fitted. Also said would give me an extra 2" lift approx. Thought that was good value considering tjm and arb setup would cost about $500. extra. tjm uses same shocks but different springs (series 2000 i think). My question is does anyone have this setup of terrain tamer springs and are they satisfied.

This deal is too good to be true.

Fitting $160 - $180 $160 - $180

Shocks $140 - $150 each $560 - $600

Total $720 - $780

$130 -$70 for 4 springs or $32.50 - $17.50 each for springs. They have to be losing money or using very cheap springs. The numbers don't add up. I would be asking who is suppling there springs?

You get what you pay for.

I've replaced many Lovel spring sets after a couple of years of off road work.

IHHO go TJM or ARB, they both come with a better waranty.

I'm running Terrain Tamers on a 2000 Prado GXL - have had them for 10 months & am very satisfied with their performance. I tow an off-road camper & a fair load with off-road driving a regular event.

I believe that the shocks come from a plant in Brazil, same as TJM, which is one of the largest shock plants in the world. Don't know who makes the springs (& struts in my case) but they work for me & are of good quality.

I paid $750 for shocks, struts & coils PLUS $200 to have them fitted & the wheels aligned.

Several other Prado owners on the Yahoo Prado group also seem happy with theirs!

I think I can remember being told by Gary the manager of Don Kyatt in Adelaide that the springs they use are King Springs.
