G/DAY CONMAN broke both sides 1 at a time,about 12 weeks apart. It was much 2 my suprise as we were traveling on forestry roads on our way to the lakes. (nothing extreme) The tilly did start life in a western shire council maybe it copped a flogging ??

What sort of shockers are you using?

There must be an identified issue because if you want to fit OME shocks you need to fit the reinforcing kit as well.

Haven't looked at mine lately but it looked okay when I fitted the reinforcing kit and shockers.

Mines done quite a bit of off road & corrugated dirt.

G'day Dave
Nice lookin tilly you have. Thankyou for the valued info on reinforcing kits as there is after market shocky's on the vehicle before we baught it. (4x4 formula I think can't quite see) I guess my next step is to talk to local suspension dealers about reinforcing kit's. I have never come across them. Thanks Eggbirt
