    Default Toyota Hilux - lift up rear suspension

    I bought a new Toyota Hilux 2.8GD 4x4 DC. I installed a RSI canopy with built in kitchen, 50litre water tank and drawer unit, I noticed that the rear suspension sag a bit specially when I am towing. Someone recommend that I install a LXH TWIN BLADE STABILISER supplied by www.loadhog.co.za. Does someone have experience of this system or is there any other system that you can recommend that will give extra lift to the rear without compromised on the driving quality and stability of the vehicle

    Thanks

    I have the same setup and I installed a Air assistant system, working well , put 3 bar into it and then the Hilux is back to 390mm from ground to tow-bar bracket.

    I ordered from Amadaxtreme and installed myself.

    I had the same problem and had an extra blade added to the existing Old Man Emu pack.

    Have a look at this. Had it installed on my Vigo (With RSI Canopy filled with camping gear inside and on top, Smart Kitchen, Drawer system, filled 60l water tank and third aux battery) and she sits perfect. Whats nice about the Loadhog is that it has little inpact on your suspension when not under weight so no bumpier ride as with extra blade. Air helpers were to expensive and the risk of punctures also counted against them for me.

    Thanks.
    I have looked at air helpers, but there is no straight fit for the XJ.
    Thought of shackle relocation bracket also, but this looks good especially if you say that it does not
    affect road handling when not under load.
