Has any one heard of the suspension brandname "Bluemax"?? I've just done a search on this site but had no results...
Apparently they are from the same factory as the Gabriel stuff. They are been sold by a reputable place here in Perth so they cant be that bad can they??

Any experiences?

cheers

yep you're right truckster. But some gear aout there is very cheap compared to other stuff and you need to ask the question.
Alot of this cheaper gear comes out of the same factory as the bigger brands so you never know till you ask....

Heres the prices so far...

OME $470/pr rear leaves....only 30mm lift.......not interested

Lovell.....$750/pair of rear leaves.......rip off

TJM.....$490.......looking OK

Ironman.......$500.....bit worried about name but $1062 for complete car fitout

Bluemax......$365/pr rear leaves.....good price by reputable dealer here in Perth.

cheers

Ive been sucked in like that before, Buying stuff that is supposedly made in the same place as known brands eg car stereo made in same place as Sony etc and without fail they have been loads of CRAP!! something else to remember is all these big companys rarely get there stuff made back home any more. Panasonic is a good example it is now made in some busted ar@#e 4 th world country that may produce decent goods with the Japs looking over their shoulder but when the production run stops They then start making C.R.A.P which is then but into whichever importers box they are delivering to this week and it ends up on the shelf at Supercheap with a 15yr old covered with zits saying yair mate course its good gets made at the same place as xyz
