2" snake racing shackles with poly bushes (the extra flex the shackles allow chews out rubber bushes far too quick)
2" tough dog springs in the rear
2" king springs in the front
2" body lift to help clear tires when they tuck into the guards
4" extended bluemaxx shocks front and rear
need to extend your bump stops 2-3" though otherwise the shocks will be shagged real quick and you wont get maximum down travel.

be sure to increase your track width when lifting your truck this much...preferably 15x10's with -44 to -50 offset or flipped 15x8s.
the wide offset will also avoid any scrubbing issues you will have on your chassis rails in the rear and leaf springs in the front at full lock.

standard front springs reset , 2" rear springs i think
falcon ute shockies and commodore wagon shockies as they are longer then standard patrol shockies.
Sway bar removed
and 2"body lift
mine should be better now but have not had it out yet have new front springs and shockies ready to go in. It rides heaps better now with new springs in front.
