    Default Everest suspension advice requested

    Hi there

    Are there any Everest owners who have had softer suspension fitted and can give me feedback/advice on what it cost and whether it was worth it?

    I'm considering installing it to improve ride comfort but I'm not sure what kind to get and I don't want to compromise off-road ability and don't want to get it if it's not really worth it.

    Thanks in advance
    Chris Smal

    Rather fit tyres with good ride characteristics. For example the locally made Goodyears work well.

    Just keep in mind ''softer'' dampers will cause more bump through.

    Thanks JJE, I actually meant a system like Old Man Emu to improve ride comfort because Ford didn't bother to change the standard bakkie suspension on the Everest.
