Hey Jacko if you don't mind getting ARB to change coils I got the hilux ones and my ute is sitting where I expected. I have bar winch and steps/bars. If your experience means you want to tell them to place it somewhere else no one can blame you so it has dragged on a bit.

I am pleased to say I had a very good result with a very nice young lady from ARB head office ,
( can I mention her name ) it seems I will now get my suspension sorted and yes alandmargie they will use that spring
If I had been able to talk to the YL right from the start this would of all most likely have been sorted weeks ago .
The thing that annoys me mostly is when I rang Head Office asking to talk to the technical department even before the Dmax arrived at the dealers to try and make sure I knew exactly what I was getting
it turns out they were only sales people .

All will be good now , I hope

I'm now have renewed confidence in ARB .

The ARB rep didn't mention 2 springs , I just go with what you think will do the job and left it up to them .

A tip if you are going to use the Old Man Emu add a leaf. I did this to change my 0 to 300kg springs to 300kg constants

If you purchase the 300kg constant as a spring pack the anti friction pads are fitted as standard. if you use the add a leaf system it does not come with anti friction pads as standard and yep you guessed it the damn thing is noisy as

So back next week to have the spring pack pulled apart for the pads to be added

A tip for all the players

Well after so long ARB are fitting 2 extra leaves to the rear each side so will give the extra lift and cope with long range tank etc especially over time, I will re measure once fitted. Oh yes and free of charge which is bonus....

Well my Dmax is in the ARB shop today to have the suspension sorted , with any luck it will come out sitting 30/35mm higher than std instead of 10mm lower , I really hope it's all good , it's only taken 4 months

I have just driven home from getting the new springs fitted to my Dmax , HD Prado springs so I was told .
The drive home is about 70k , I measured it as soon as I parked on the concrete

going on the shops numbers it has dropped 6mm sides in the 70Ks

The front right is now only 9mm higher than std
The front left is 16mm higher than std .

I know the 35mm lift is approximate ( give or take a couple ) but it's still not even close

The rep from ARB Head Office did ring me as I pulled into my drive to see what I thought , I hadn't measured it at that stage , she wants me to keep her informed , I appreciate that and I will

But really this has taken weeks , I have just about had enough

What would you Blokes do .
