Thanks, I missed the "h/" before the word brake :roll:, thought it was referring to the brake line brackets not the handbrake.
Cheers

For the front end : Nothing fitted (part # 3056); bar only (part #3057) and bar + winch (part # 3058).

Similar for rear : Medium load (EL072R), constant 300kg (EL073R) and constant 600kg (EL074R).


funny that i got a quote for front springs today from ARB :) and with BAR ONLY the coil spring part# number was 3058,maybe they have worked out it was too light for the winch and bar :?: 300kg constant rear springs was ELO73R.was quoted $10060.77 for (1)greaseable shackles(2)Front coils(3)rear 300kg constant(4)u/bolt washer and nuts(5)h/brake relocation kit, does this seem too expensive? im also getting an ARB deluxe bar fitted tommorow(friday) so im hoping to get this price down if im lucky :lol:
Yeah 10 grand sounds about right :roll: :lol:

What's the brake relocation kit do, apart from the obvious, is it just a move or lengthened lines? mines at 580 on the rear and the lines are ok but lots of others have had to lengthen.


:lol: :lol: :lol: funny Danno,just seen the price i put :lol: your right coming from them no surprises :lol: :lol:

Ok update on my suspension Left Front = 760 from bottom of rim 545 from centre wheel
Right Front = 762 rim 547 centre

I have had the 3rd leaf removed from the rear spring pack by removing the leaf they tell me my springs are now rated at 430kg constant , the ride is much improved
The rear has dropped 55mm

The rake now looks much better

The ride hight measured by ARB with the std suspension of, 750 / 755mm , may of been misleading because the vehicle was only driven from the dealer to ARB a couple of K's , not much time to of settled

If I worked on the above std 750/755 actually being 740/745mm , reading some of the posts in this thread it sounds reasonable , my front I
is about 15-20mm higher than std , still a long way short of the 30/35mm claimed , but the vehicle rake looks much better and ride is much improved .

The contact I have at ARB Head Office wants me to keep her informed on what I think , I might just see what happens and when I get a chance load the Ute to full touring weight and hook the Tvan up and see what happens .

Just as well I have bugger all else to do ay .

The "standard" height from the centre of the hub to the guard for the front is 520 and rear is 540. Refer back a few pages in this thread for discussions. What was yours before upgrading?
