Doing a bit of research for the Cruiser - anyone know of availability for double shock mounts for the rear of a LC100? Rational is that with two sets of shocks in each corner, workload and fade is reduced (revalved shocks). Have them on the Rangie...

With numerous 1000's of 100's out there stuffed to the doors runnin singles round the country before the front end falls apart, why would you need twins?

Ahh... there might be 1000s of 100s out there, but only one of me... ;)

Not all mods are equal to all men (and women). I am trying to find a solution to something that I have been plagued with since driving my 1st 4WD (Series 1 or 2 - can't remember...)

At this stage I am only looking at the rears...

Run the right rear shocks, and dont exceed your GVM, and you wont need to waste your money on the additional mounts.

Of course, also, if running 2 shocks on a corner, they need to be identical in valving, or one will still be doing all the work, but the best way really, if wanting to run 2 shocks, is to set up one to handle compression, and the other to handle rebound, halving the load, the heat, and the wear.

Yes I am aware of the need to valve identically the two shocks - however I had not heard of the compression/rebound method. Will check that out with the shock people (Heasman).

Thanks for that...

When you speak with them, ask for Steve Mortimer, and tell him you have spoken with Darren from ATS in Geelong.

Im sure he will tell you also, fit one shock, right for the job, and dont worry about 2.

Saw a featured truck in a 4wd mag last year running dual Ranchos all round ,one adjustable one not .

Didnt think about it at the time but I guess the guy has wasted his money,unless he has them dialed the same only one is doing the work.
