I just had a quick look at their web site and IMO shocks with a 36mm piston are just too small to be effective over long rough roads and tracks in a heavy vehicle like a Patrol. The OME shocks I just dumped had 35mm pistons and they were not up to the job. I'd be looking for a piston over 40mm, preferably about 45mm or even bigger. Not only does the bigger piston have a better mechanical advantage, a bigger diameter shock will have more fluid in it to do the work.

Cheers,
