Dear All.,

I am waiting for delivery of my new DC Hilux and looking at an ARB lift/ suspension kit with Old Man Emu gear.

Can anyone who has seen it done please comment (good or bad) on the upgrade and how it might affect breaking? Its not a specific lift but rather a springs and Shocks replacement that gives a slight lift.

Hi aeiou,

I have had that done, lift was 2 inches. No problems what so ever, very happy with the results. Under heavy load there was sag so I ended up putting air bags in so the unloaded ride was not so rough (rather than add the extra spring).

I had this upgrade done and it has made the vehicles braking feel more controllable and driving feel is certainly improved. It felt like it you imagine a vehicle should feel from the factory.
