You've got a bit of a quandry, eh?

I'd be inclined to go for the TJM set-up. I currently use their XGS shocks and am happy with them. I have Lovells springs and no castor kit at this stage (but am booked in for a wheel alignment and full front end check up in a few weeks). Kings springs are excellent, but i have heard too many bad stories about Rancho shocks not being tough enough for patrols and Cruisers. I also have a Tough Dog return to centre steering damper (but it recently chit itself and is off to sydney for a warranty replacement at present).

Good luck.

Not a big choice, so I would go TJM.

See if you can get others sent over from the big island, OME is one I would consider a better suspension all round.

I'd go the Kings on price. Then look at Koni shocks. The local guy should be able to source them for you.
Cheers, John.

I'm using TJM 50mm raised springs and XGS shocks on my 3.0 and am very happy with the ride on and off road. I didn't need a castor correction but I guess each installation is different and should be checked if necessary. I used heavy duty coils as I carry a bit of gear for work during the week, the ride is not too harsh when empty (which is rare in my vehicle) and excellent when loaded up.

I have Koni adjustables and Extra Heavy duty Lovells. The ride is excellent and I didn't need a castor kit.

Have just fitted Bilstein shocks and springs, 50mm lift. Absolutely brilliant!
