    Default Long term shocks review - Amadaxtreme

    Good day all,

    I'm interested in installing amadaxtreme suspension on my 2015 Toyota Hilux but am unsure whether I should go through with the idea as I haven't seen any review on these shocks lately.

    My previous vehicle's shocks were placed with amadas and the difference in driving quality was huge, especially on bad gravel roads. Based on this and my previous experience (+- 30k kms) I'm looking in going this route again on the newer vehicle.

    If anyone could share some long term review of these shocks it would be very helpful. If you can't do a long term review yet any feedback on these shocks will help.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Hans,
    Yes, I am also keen to hear what others have to say about them, especially on ride quality on corrugated roads and if they overheat.

    Hi
    I recently purchased a 2.4 4X4 AT Fortuner.
    Very keen to hear if you guys fitted them and what your take is?

    Is there anyone that has fitted an Amadaxtreme suspension on a Fortuner or Hilux that can give us some feedback?

    Or any vehicle for that matter?

    Thanks Dirk, I will reach out to him.

    Its seems that quite a few guys did the Amadaxtreme upgrade on their Fortuners, wish they would give some feedback after long term use

    I fit the AX 50mm lift kit about 2 1/2 years ago into a 2013 D4D DC.

    This comprised of new front coils, extended shackles at the rear, air-helpers at the rear and AX shocks all round.

    The difference from stock was huge. I have done a number of trips with them, mostly towing, and have not had a single issue with them overheating or giving any trouble on corrugated roads.

    The air helpers also make a big difference when towing to level the van, so you donít get that jerk when hitting a depression in the road as the nose stays stable.

    Iíve run over some speed bumps at speed as well (not towing obvs) and it did not misbehave, but there you could feel it is no OME which would just glide over. That is probably largely due to the fact that you retain the standard blades at the back.

    I wasnít going to spend R40k on OME on a vehicle that was almost 10 years old and the AX kit came in at R23k which I found to be reasonable compromise between price and quality.
