Does anyone have king springs on a 2003 model Prado onwards. Looking at getting king springs and Koni shocks for new 2005 hilux, contacted kings and model number they gave me is same as Prado (KTFR-101) front coils.

Do these coils hold up when a winch and bullbar are fitted. Also noted that the Prado has a heavy duty coil (KTFR_101HD), is this coil taller than the non heavy duty coil?

My other option is to wait a few weeks and get Lovells coils instead.

Not a fan of the suspension systems that ARB sell. Have had 2 sets before and both failed. Seemed to be made more for comfort than real offroad work.

The Koni shocks sounds ok but not saggy Kings springs. Im not to impressed with ARB suspension myself ,was just a suggestion for the new Hilux

Saggy kings? Is that from experience, if so what type of car with or without a winch and bullbar. How long did it take to sag?. Thinking of waiting for Lovell’s as they seem to have a good rep.

Any feedback would be good as I haven’t any experience with coils over shocks as all other hiluxs had just leaf springs.

Lovells Springs (with Biltein shocks) are the best for prado...
