Are you after good stuff or cheap stuff???
Bilsteins and Lovells are the best...
ARB setup (OME) would probably go to second place and a huge distance from the first...

I put standard king raised springs front/rear, kept same shocks. About 45mm difference, but settles quickly. I hardly notice it now, though I know it is a bit higher than stock. Cheap easy little upgrade. Do a front alignment after a few weeks. I've noticed no problems. Tonester

My 90 series had the OME spring/shocks on it when I bought it.

Not a bad setup, not much of an increase in height (20-30mm) above standard,
compared to a mates Prado when it had standard suspension.

He now has the lovells/bilstein combo that most rave about, and I can see why.
Really good for ride height (50mm) and both onroad and offroad ability.

Hope it helps

John

Hi Micck,
My 120 started out with OME setup and I found it had too much bounce, changed to Bilstiens with Lovell springs and it's a dream....the Bilsteins are the velocity controlled valving type
Cheers
