Hi Tim,

What did you do for suspension upgrade? Factory option discussed or from another supplier? I am just wondering about the $2000 price tag for factory supplied shocks, springs and bump stops. This seems a little expensive to me.

Hmm ,Did i see any negatives in the report , nope don't thinnk so . The legend has just begun .

would i pay 2000 extra maybe just to not having the hassle of puttin it in to be redone somewhere else , most manufactureres are over priced anyway .Even better would be just to include it , at some stage i'm sure they will like the free nudge and tow pack last month .

Tim D.

Have you tried "The Ultimate Suspension Pty Ltd" in Mintyo NSW. They specialise in Sway-a-Way Torsions bars for 4wd.

My suspension was done by TJM at a cost of $970.00 which included 4 XGS heavy duty shockers and 4 king springs really need to upgrade the torsion bars as i have a little to much bounce in the front end after cracking them up all up I got about 2 inches all the way round

$2000 for a susension upgrade?

A bit tasty for my liking.

I had mine done at TJM; 4 new shockers, new rear springs, torsion bars ratcheted up and the front bump stops modified for $900.

Handling vastly improved, 45mm lift, no rear end sag when towing etc.

Sounds like a typical "genuine factory fitted" and overpriced alternative.

I would recommend against it. Another dealer lurk to make profit?

Shop around, I would suggest.

Cheers,

Jim.

Hi All

Our Terracan is about 18 months old, it has done just over 20,000 kms, and has been relatively fault free so far.

Just like one of the guys earlier, we had one of the ones that had a dodgy cable between the alternator and battery - it all got replaced with no fiss.

It's my wife's daily driver, but we manage to get it offroad 4 -5 times a year.

The only changes I would like to do someday are the suspension and AT tyres.

The new diesel looks good.

Chris
