obviously you hadnt of heard of Big O 4x4 in Adelaide?

sorry, but i do believe he is cheaper, and you would have gotten dropped raduis arms not boxes.
MHO anyways..


and tut-tut for not spending your money locally is SA!






BUT, ive heard nothing but good work from Shane, hope you enjoy his kit :)

Mate do yourself a massive favor and rig him back and get a set of lower control arms. You will more than likely snap yours when wheeling hard and trust me the end result and dollar figure is massive
Also what shocks you going for?

i will mate everyone says that he even told me. but concidering ive spent about 10000 buks on the mav in the last month its gonna have to wait. i wont bne doing anything serious until i get them and also a superior drag link. i went for the suspension stuff shocks as i dont want the softness of the pro comps. and it helped keep the price down. i figure i can always upgrade the shocks later thats the easy bit :)

also old school hero. i looked at big o's gear and the price is basically the same although u r right i would get driopped arms but i dunno havent heard much about his stuff and my kit has all superior enginering bars which i am glad about. i may get some of big o's dropped arms if there r people on here that can vouch for them :) as far as the money leavin SA. its much for muchness i spend in qld which supports flood victoms and some other bloke from qld will spend his cash down here :)

The coils in the kit are out of a 20% higher tensile material with a better design. If you want to know the spring rates, check out the vendors section under Suspension Stuff then Flexy Coils. I haven't put them on the web site yet but I probably will sometime over the next week now Steve will be back from holidays.

i got the 3 inch flexi kit for my shorty a few weeks ago. Good price and good people to deal with.

i also went the suspension stuff shocks,can always change them to bigger units down the track if need be,im sure they will be fine.

i just got some 12mm radius arm spacers to bring the diff forward a touch so the wheels clear the back of the guards

If your coils are black Mike or sold as our Flexy Coil you will have the good coils.

Drop boxes will always drive nicer then radius arms because your arms are more level meaning the forces go through the springs instead of through the arms which transfers to a shunt to the body, you will also climb a vertical rock much better with drop boxes because with a radius arm, as the tyre tries to climb it actually has to push the vehicle back because of the arc it operates in.

Radius arms have better clearance though.
