    Default Seikel Field and Forest kit for sale

    Following on from this thread, it's for sale again

    http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...d-n-Forest-kit

    I bought this from Transporter, but have since changed my plans. So it is back up for sale, at R5500.

    Now you have to explain. Is there something wrong with it?

    Nope, did not even had it on the Amarok.

    I have a 30mm spacer on the back, and as such the rear shocks are extended more than normal. That means when going over a speed bump, doing more than 80, it feels as if the back shocks are bottoming out.

    For some reason I thought the Seikel kit had a spacer that would sort this out, but it doesn't. Granted, the Seikel spacer is only 20mm, so the problem should not exist.

    I have since phoned Darrell at Mikem, and have decided to fit extended rear Billstein shocks. I did not even know he could build them, but it seems he can. That's the route I am going to go now.

    Im not sure if im understanding this correct. If it bottoms out with the spacer would it not be
    worse without the spacer?
    Or is it extended to the max travel of the shock, more like the back is getting airborne?

    On a side note , why would you hit speed bumps at 80 km/h ?

    Maybe put down the mileage on it?

    Not a bad price depending on the mileage. Unfortunately I cannot help.

    I put in extended Bilstein rear shocks from Darrel. Think they are 15mm longer (so 30mm longer at full droop). Have tested it, they dont bottom out when you are on the bump stop, and the brake and ABS lines still have slack at full extension.

    That, yes.

    I just call it speed bumps, as it is bumps in the road taken at speed.

    The road I am talking about is a single lane road, with a pronounced bump, which when taken at 80 or more make the rear goes light.

    Ok,

    For others, these usually have a warranty of 100 000km/3years

    Not sure if it will be carried over, but should give an indication of the "remaining life"

    Should be coils, 2 spacers, longer shackles and new bump stops. Clubbie, maybe the bump stops can solve your problem?
