brother has a 98 hilux looking to lift it and has a good price on cross country suspension brand new nevere installed from someone who has since sold the car .
i know they are sold via total 4 x 4 in rockhampton but who else sells them .
who makes the components as some are re bedged copies of the same!
so looking for anybody who has used them for a hilux or any other vehicle .
it is a whole 2 inch lift kit with shackles, springs(leaf), steering damper and u bolts and bushes.

Toonfish, I recently put the exact same full kit from CC on my 75 series and all I can say is that if it gives a 2 inch lift I'd hate to be buying rope off them.... I found my original old springs had more lift in them with and without a load. Took them back and got another set with an extra leaf all round - still not 2 inches of lift though. Best thing to do is rip out one of the old springs and compare the eye heights with the new one - although the old hilux springs are fairly flat to start with. My recomendation is that if you carry any substantial load get the extra leafs. Spoke to another bloke about springs (mechanic) and he said he has had plenty of people complaining about new leaf springs (any brand) not lasting or holding up......so there must be a flood of cheap steel or springs coming from overseas I reckon. But still for the $600 I saved buying the CC kit I'm not too worried if they wear out a little earlier.

Cheers,
Hughesy
