    Hello everyone! I just got 2006 Toyota Hilux and I was looking forward to buying a lift kit suspension for my vehicle. I live in Melbourne, Australia and if you know any good retailers that you had experience with them, please tell me about them. :)
    Have a nice day, Chris.

    Hi Chris
    I had an 07 Hilux with King springs and Bilstein shocks and it was great onroad for handling but was too harsh off-road compared to a mates who had Old Man Emu setup which was nice off-road but horrible on road as it was too soft
    He later fitted Ultimate suspension and that was easily the better setup of compromise between the two. Ultimate have a Hilux and have done a lot of them so it would be worthwhile having a chat to them

    I also found this VehicleMods website and they have pretty nice reviews on the website, but has someone ever ordered from there?
    Can you send me some more online retailers if you know. I need them to ship to Melbourne.

    Ultimate ship to Melbourne. They will also recommend a local installer
    If you plan on DIY you will need a set of quality spring clamps or arrange the supplier to preload them

    I would think the accessories you have on now or plan to get in the future will have a big impact on which spring rates you go for. So when ordering on line you may need this and more info. Or call Ultimate and they should be able to sort you out - as they did me also.
