Does anyone have MCA suspension on their Dmax's?

I know MCA makes great quality suspension for road/tarmac racing. They also do stuff for offroad racing ala Fox/kings.
Plus being an Aussie company has got to be a win yeah?

Don't know of any but when I hear fox I think expensive. Be interested in feedback if you go with them.

MCA may be an Australian company but I doudt if most of the gear they sell is made here. Hardly a win situation for Orstrayans.

Oooooh yes it is, it's pretty much all designed and built in Orstraya...at least the MCA branded stuff is, can't speak for the Fox/Kings mentioned above though as I wasn't interested, I just purchased coil overs for a recent acquisition of mine and looked right into it and it was good to see that not everything is made in bloody China.

Yeah the MCA gold ones are all Aussie from the email i got.

"Long distance 4WD shocks should have a remote canister fitted.
These shocks are adjustable in 2 way bump, and rebound"


A rough quote as per their website was
$4500.. Does anyone have pricing for the new ARB BP51 stuff?

The Bp's have been around quite a while now, but to be honest we have had a few issues with them, would very rarely see the sports nitro back, but weeping seels on the bp was not uncommon, they are a wet shock but not that wet. Will you be adjusting the shock ofter as most of the time after several months the customers when asked would admit they have not changed them from install. They perform really well but unless you really need to adjust the handling characteristics often, the money could go elswhere. Look forward to hearing about what you go with, I will get some new medium nitro sports next fortnight, do the job for me anyway.

Ohh really? Nice to know. I was seriously thinking about them as an option. But unlike fox/kings/mca they dont have the racing heritage to iron out all the bugs. They are probably very good pieces of kit but i think theres better options out there.

They've done a few sets for MUXs and DMAXs in the Dakar, looking at a cheeky 5k for their gold series fronts.
