Am anticipating upgrading a 2012 NW Pajero suspension with the Heavy duty Bilstein shocks and Lovell springs...which seem the popular choice for this vehicle. It will be towing a 2600 ATM offroad caravan. (The ball weight is not an issue) What's the thoughts on also having Teflon sleeved airbags fitted at the same time mainly to ensure the rig is level. I also have a Hayman Reece wdh fitted.

Got Bilsteins, and lovells on lc79 dual cab, and tow semi / offroad van loaded 2.8T and found the ride fantastic, even when just driving without van comfortable ride, what more can I add? ;o))

I thought they were Kevlar sleeves, not Teflon. For the record I've been happy with the airbags I have.
You should find plenty of responses in this thread from earlier this year

Thanks. Yep they are Kevlar sleeves. Excellent Pajero club reference. Look like a must to me. Cheers.

We upgraded our 2012 NW Pajero with Dobinson springs and Bilstein shocks. Only went for minimum increase in ride height - 15cm at rear and 10cm at the front from memory. Very happy with the result. We had airbags on previously and we kept those. Also pulling an off road caravan about 2500kg fully loaded. No Hayman Reese wdh but we do have a roll problem with the van because of its height, which we have not yet resolved. An anti roll bar on the van or some kind of anti-swerve device being considered. It already has Alko ESC.
