I have searched the forum, and have found that people have only good things to say about toughdog foam cell shocks. I was therefore surprised to find that my new shocks had failed. The dealer ordered a new pair, and I found that they offered much more resistance, even though they were the same part number - then I noticed that the difference were in the "made in" stamp. The shocks that failed were made in mexico, whereas the new ones were made in the USA.
Coincidence?
I dont know, but will in future insist on the USA shocks.

gday chris
i remember a while ago someone was asking about either tough dog/rancho shocks.all i said was that theese shocks were made in america for american conditions and got shot down to pieces.
australia has one of the most harshest enviroments for road conditions ect in the world.so my way of seing things is why not buy aussie made for aussie conditions.bilsteins/koni would have to be the best but at a price.made overseas but where do you think they do there researce and development.right here.
personally i would go monroe/pedders/old man emu tried and tested.looking foward to september(landcruiser park/fraser island)
