Now I am sure you all have others to add, if you want to add post below and I can update this intro post if you feel that this helps. I know we can also do shocks and struts specialty brands like Bilstein and Koni, later. If you want to suggest a different layout to above great and also if you want to add any particulars to comments let us know.

I have popped this up because as a newbie triton owner web surfing myself for info this would have helped me, I hope it helps others. 8-)

Great post mate. Would be a great sticky.
I hate to advocate drugs, sex, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.

I have some of the EFS kit - only shocks! And they are great offer a 3 year warranty or 100 000kms! I sold the EFS Coils to 'Jop' i assume he is ok with them... For the price - EFS is good gear, also had it on my last MK, very happy!

Just added:

Fulcrum Suspensions for something different as they "lower" the Triton for better onroad performance.

RAW 4x4 - supposedly a 50mm kit, never heard of anyone with this kit yet.

I'm getting the EFS package fitted (medium) next week ,supposed to be 40 mm. I'll let you know.

Was gonna get the RAW suspension but they now only do a standard height kit for the manuals due to the shudder issue. They were a 50 mm kit previously

Hi Stevo,

Thanks

Hey Daryn.
I think so, but don't hold me to it. A friend has the RAW kit (50mm)and reckons its good. The EFS was a lot cheaper with 3 yr warranty

Hi all,

One more to add to the list

Pedders.

http://www.pedders.com.au/catalogue

I have just had my Tri fitted with Trak Ryder Gas Struts, h/d front springs & rear shocks.

Very happy so far, handles well & the front has lifted about 40mm- the winch & bar made it sag about 20mm so a gain of about 20mm over new.

The front upper & lower wishbone buffers now sit evenly spaced, whereas before the lower was about 5mm & rubbed the paint off the stopper.

I went for Pedders because they are a well established company & have been it the suspension game for about
60 years. They have also been in rally sport & know their stuff.

As they have stores Australia wide there is also the peace of mind that it can be fixed almost anywhere.
