Hello all,
just new to the 4WD caper but have been a keen camper etc for years. Wanting to upgrade the LN61 suspension. IFS, leaf sprung rear. Am looking at RANCHO, OME or IRONMAN and hoping to get a bit of lift ( 40 - 50 mm) but am concerned about other problems that come with it.

Also having a look at TOUGHDOG by Opposite Lock.

I dont have money to burn and need something that is going to give me good off road performance and be okay on the black stuff because I am a city dweller these days.

I dont intend on rock crawling or anything but will be taking the old girl touring to the Kimberly, Darwin, Alice etc in June July.

Anyone with 1st knowledge who can offer me advice, I"D LOVE TO LISTEN.

If you are in Melbourne, give Adam a call at Ironman, he looked after me well with all new Ironman suspension, works well off road.

OME suspension. Spend the money once, instead of several times over :)

Go the OME, have just replaced my'n last week and the original OME had been in the vehicle for 15 years and have put ome back in again last wednesday.15 years no broken springs,shackles pins etc, shockies just started to get a bit bouncy and the springs were just starting to sagg on the front only still have the originals in the back end and my'n is leaf spring front and back and you dont need a kidney belt.Love it will not buy any other form of suspension, not saying that the others arnt any good but I will stick with what to me has been tried and tested.Around oz twice and a fair amount of climbing rocks etc, I know you dont want to do rock hopping but said that to prove how reliable I think ome is and no I dont have anything to do with them or any form of 4wd advertising for them just to me a brilliant product. Check out ebay and I have put my old ones on there as they were only just starting to sagg probably by about 1cm but we are doing a few trips this year and I decided to replace them and shocks all at once. These are not going to fit your 4 runner but just for you to see how good they are after all those years. Go ome you wont regret It. Regards Steve M

Thanks to those who replied. After much consideration I have decided to go with the full OME kit, torsion bars, springs, shocks, g / shackles. Even got the approval from the boss. Expect to have it and a long ranger tank fitted in the next couple of months.

I spoke with Adam SNELL at ARB Richmond (via em) and spoke 1st hand to Andrew. Didn't feel as though they were hard selling, felt very confident with product knowledge and development.

All others I have asked generally advised OME as well.
