    MN Triton - 2 inch lift.......which kit?

    I'm looking to improve the on & off road handling of my Triton but not sure which suspension kit to go with.

    Have so far looked at:

    Superior Engineering
    Dobinson's
    Bilstein
    Tough Dog

    All seem to be similarly priced.

    Anyone have any real life experience with these suppliers?

    My car is a manual & ive heard I may encounter driveline vibration after raising the suspension height, anyone know if this is likely?

    Not sure if its similar to the MQ, but my mate put the Dobinsons in his MQ and its alot nicer than stock. Loves it.

    And yep he did ecounter the driveline vibrations, but sorted it out with some spacer thing for the tailshaft

    Very happy with my lovells shocks, efs leaves and dobinsons front coil springs. Any 3 of those brands will be good.

    MN Triton - 2 inch lift.......which kit?

    I recently put an Ultimate Suspension 2" kit in my MN. Very happy and have taken it up the high country for a good bashing.

    The story with tail shafts and vibrations best to my knowledge is any manual with the super select (glxr) or one piece tailshaft won't get the shudder. The rest some do some don't.

    My rears are also load proportioned too as at times I tow or carry some heavy stuff, daily driving wouldn't think they any different

    Should be able to sort something out. just need to chase up the weights of all the bits.
    also need to know if you have any accessories like bullbar, winch, tool boxes etc.

    can do 2 different kits, both have king front springs, fulcrum formula leafs, Superpro greasable shackle and eye bushes and new u bolts.
    Supplied with bilstein shocks $1600
    Supplied with Fulcrum formula shocks $1150.
