    Default Iron Man suspension kit - advice?

    Hi

    My '05 CRDi Can has standard suspension unlike my 2007 V6 before which luckily came with the TJM kit Hyundai were offering back then.

    The time has come to do something about it! I'm considering the following kit from Ironman:

    Anyone experienced with this kit on a Tcan or Pajero Mk2?

    I do more overlanding than 4x4 courses, but want the better clearance, with the est 40mm that should be gained & stiffer suspension. Also don't want to worsen road handling & comfort as she's still a family wagon for the long road!

    Any advice welcomed, thanks.

    Pats, speak to oom Sarel, SarelF on the forum. He had Camils in the front, same as the last Colt bakkies, and had Van Zyls make up coils for him with shocks from I don't know where he sourced it, was much cheaper and he never had any problems. I currantly have the TJM suspension, and it is load of crap! Rides higher, but rocks like an ossewa! Front always looks higher than rear and it irretates me. When my shocs is finished, I'm defnitely going the camil in the front way, but I must admit I'm looking at fitting the ironman torsion bars. The torsion bars is important for the rocking apperantly, not the shox!

    Thanks LouisX

    Spoken to the guys at Mikem Suspensions down in Selby. Theyve never done a Can so asked me to come in to remove and spec the coils and shocks. They make their own uprated coils and torsion bars and fit Bilstein and Koni(more street car lowering) shocks. Must make the time to take off the wife's hands and in to them, to see what they say.

    I know I have said it a few times before, but you can't go far wrong with Darrell/Mikem. He'll give a straight answer, even if it isn't quite what you want to hear!

    If you cannot fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.

    Must say that i had Ironman shocks in the front, they didn't last even a year.
    I wasnt impressed at all.
    Maybe i had the road model and not the 4x4 model.....
