    Re: Shock absorbers for Pajero Sport

    I replaced my springs with OE units and B6 Bilstein shocks at around 100,000 km. Thing is, I usually run the car with only one passenger and very little cargo, will never tow anything. For me then,...

    Re: Shock absorbers for Pajero Sport

    I got my front and rear B6 Bilsteins for the Pajero LWB from www.imcomex.co.za. Their sales point is in Parow.

    On my car, they are better than the originals on dirt, but noticeably firmer on tar,...

    Re: How damaging is corrugation?

    Did these at all improve ride QUALITY on tar as well? I have the standard B6 Bilsteins and whilst they are excellent on dirt roads, they are less comfortable than the original Kayaba's on tar.

  6. Re: Road Condition: R356 Sutherland to Loxton

    Apart from a general observation that Karoo roads are usually some of the best dirt roads in the country, best advice is to keep speeds down (< 100 km/h). Slower speeds also assist in spotting...

    Re: Advice please for newbie 4x4er

    With your needs, would go for any of the Trailblazer, Everest or Pajero. Would just take the one with the lowest mileage and best tyres. :)

    Re: Soft low clutch on cold start

    Well, a new clutch is always soft (new pressure plate) and "takes near the ground" (thick clutch plate lining) as you put it. I think they also worked on your clutch slave cylinder or just replaced...

    Re: Shocks, tyres and comfort on Gen 4

    Then mostly what I thought - B6's are non-adjustable, so if you want more comfort on tar, it will be up to tyres and tyre pressures.

    Less compliant than the full OE setup. That is the only reference point I have. Also see I edited my original post to read "2 bar on tar".

    I often run down to 1.5 on dirt roads, yes. My question was on how to improve tar comfort with the OE springs - Bilstein combo.
