    2” lift advice

    G’day everyone,

    Picked up my first patrol a few weeks back, it’s a 1990 GQ TD42 turbo,

    Suspension will be my first upgrade and after reading heaps of threads about brands and set ups I think I’ve finally got it worked out but keen to get a few more opinions before I start,

    For shocks thinking Bilstein B6 as haven’t heard anything bad about those yet,

    As for coils was gonna go for EFS with 80-100kg load in the front (I’ve got bull bar, winch and dual batteries) and 50-100kg load in the back as I’ve got a roof rack and tow ball but that’s about it rarely tow a little tinny,

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on these brands and has anyone used them together? Any info would be appreciated

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the tips, After having a look at the links you suggested I got onto the king springs catalogue and referenced the part numbers and now I’m a lot more confident in the springs I’ll be getting,

    Gonna go with Rear KDRR-43HD (100-250kg) and Front KDFR-42HHD (100-250kg)

    Has anyone used these in the front? Being the extra heavy duty option does seem excessive but with a steel bull bar, winch, dual batteries plus lights and other bits and pieces my front end is well over the 100kg limit on the heavy duty coils,

    Cheers
