Hi folks,

Does anyone have an opinion or know much about Tough Dog Suspension setups?
I'm interested in an after market spring/damper setup for my 90 series Prado.

My opinion is the dog is not as tough as the price tag suggests.
Alternatively Lovell springs/Bilstien shocks are giving excellent results on Playdoes.

My Opinion - Tough Dog - Poodles
Had two sets fail - First paid for - second under warranty - refused to look at it again. (Ralph could be another story - I am not sure)
I now have a set from ARB - Old man Emu - so far they are way in front - Only time will tell

Had a set installed (front and back) on my previous Pajero NM. It was the Stage 2 set which comprised of coils and foam cell shocks. Gave the Paj a 70mm lift and performed very well in some serious tracks and sand. Never scraped the bottom nor got stuck once. Very bumpy though on bitumen, but was acceptable.

Used the set for around 100000 problem free kilometres. Maybe consider the adjustable ones to dial-in the most appropriate setting for your load. I would consider it again come time to replace the set in my current Prado 120.
