In the latest Repco catalogue they have Maxitrac 4WD shock absorbers out for $179 a pair, now I know that they aren't OME's or Konis for this price, but for the budget I was looking to spend on replacing the original shockies on my GU Patrol they seem like a pretty good deal. Anyone tried them or had a bad experience with these sort of Repco specials?

Thanks in Advance

Put them on my 80 series , 12mths on no problems ,, are made in China for Repco ,unlike some on the forum ,I wont call the Chinese made gear rubbish until I have tried the product , to the best of my knowledge the Maxitrac are identical to Ironman except for the paintjob and the orange poly "rubbers".

G'Day Snowy.
I work at a repco repairer and have fitted a few sets of maxitrac shockers recently. As yet there have been no problems and a couple of the sets were on some fairly serious 4WDs, not just the town cars that most seem to be. I am planning on using them in my Rodeo when the time comes. And for the price compared with OME or Konis u cant go wrong.
Cheers Andrew

Had Ranchos on my GU patrol and broke them.

Fitted Maxitrac shockers over 12 months ago and have had nil problems with them so far. Ride is as good as the Ranchos if not better. Good value for money.

It will be interesting to see if anyone has run them on the Anne Bidell ,Gun Barrell ar Canning these are the trips that sort the good shockies out from the bad, Most aftermarket replacement shockies are OK for around town and weekend type 4x4 usage. It is hundereds of kilometers of corrugations that find out which are the best!

Hi Snowy

I put them on my sons 60 series about 6 months ago when we replaced the original suspension. So far the ride has improved dramatically and he has had no problems.
