Most economical and good quality is enforcer suspension.
I have used on 3 patrols and travelled the canning with the last set,no problems.

Robert,

No need to yell! You dont say where u are but I did my GQ for well under $1000 from CGA in Bayswater in Melbournes east.

They are great guys there and can supply suspension upgrades and all manner of 4wd stuff. I went for a 2" lift and it worked out excellent. Racking my brains for the make of the coils but they were yellow! When it pops in I'll let u know

All the best________________________________>

Wolf Offroad will sort you out Robert. Kits include king springs Rancho 5000 or 9000. RS 9000 are fully adjustable and they are having a sale. Try bretton1@bigpond.com both options under $1500

good luck

are you planing on fitting the parts your self
if your going to upgrade shocks and coils think about what you plan on doing with your 4by.
will you be towing a lot.
going offroad a lot or just on black top.
if your going to go off road a little consider raising it 50mm while your going as coils dont cost any more for a lift unless you want to go heavy duty.
i do the occasional of road and a fair bit of towing.
i went with gas magnum shocks(monroe) standard height which alows a 50mm lift.about $400 a set of 4
and pedders coils with heavy duty rear coils 50mm lift about $300 set of 4.
if your not fitting them your self labour wise you should add about $120.
and dont forget wheel alignment.easter fun at jamison

1) Do you want to lift the car, or just upgrade?

2) what do you intend to do with the car
Towing
hard 4wding
few weekends here and there
just driving around town

3) where are you? EG What state are you in, theres a good quality suspension kit forsale in our club magazine in Melbourne.

4) Doing the job yourself?


Old Man Emu, TJM XGS/Series 2000 shocks and springs are all good.
King springs are good. Koni SHocks are THE best, Bilsteins are good..

Theres lots around, if your only upgrading your std gear, then go with OME or TJM stuff, both are very good and under $1000.

If in Melbourne, call Alan at Outback accessories Seaford. Or other side of town, Brett at Total4wd Center Epping. Both do quality work, and cheap prices.


YMMV>

I had ARB fit Old Man Emu Coils & shocks to my GQ, which gave a 2" lift Fitted heavy duty to the rear and was able to to carry 220 litres of diesel and 75 l water plus 2 bodies and all nessecaries for 6 weeks on the road without making the vehcle sag . Have been up the CSR, Cape Leveque and Gibb River RD & Mitchell Falls, and many other places.Did nearly 10,000 k's without a puncture or any other problem. MAde the ride much better and far more comfortable on the rough stuff. Would recommend them to anyone.Bush Bappo's 4WD Club
