Have been talking to my local dealer about the amount of lift on the front of my dmax. After doing some basic checks a longer front spring will be put in approx 16 mm. I hope this will fix the severe rake it has now, with the addition of center bearing packers all should be good. I have decided to leave the 300 kg constant load springs in for when we travel with our camper trailer.

Well we went the strongest hilux spring and it sits with a small take forward. Now when loaded it will sit level. Trying to workout how to do pics, my eyes roll back in my head when there's too many instructions.

I am in the same boat with my ARB lift with the front to rear rake due to the back end coming up further than expected and the front end coming up nowhere near the advertised 35mm

I am dciding weather to use a trim packer in the front or replacing the entire spring set with another brand

Trim packer 5 mm I end up using the hilux bar and winch spring. This was all done at no charge as like you said the front did not rise enough

A quick update on my suspension , I now have longer hilux springs in the front and after a month it has settled nicely. The ride and height is what I expected in the 1st place. A big shoutout to orange ARB for not fobbing me off but doing what was necessary to get it right.

If yours in an LSM - that would equal a 40mm lift as my measurements were basically all around 740..I measured as ARB did ^^^..

Molong..Its a shame about the Gelato shop!
