How are they, do they give the lift advertised?

Also, how's the spring rate compared to stock, stiffer or the same?

I going to get the 40mm front to get that baja rake goin', just wanted to see how yall liked them...

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I live about 3 hours from their factory/shop. Where I work is a reseller for them. We do quite a bit of work with them, they have always done an excellent job.

I have Dobinsons coils for my rig but have yet to put them in. I also opted for their rear TJ lift coil and Rav 4 rear shocks. (Thanks Dennis/Everet!)

A lot of people here in Australia go for the Dobinsons springs. All reports I have heard are that they are better than other brands on the market.

The only issue we have had so far is that they cannot make a custom strut for our vehicles... Maybe if you suggested it to them as well, we might be able to get something happening? I think the reason was because they didn't want to spend all the money for a one off order. If you are interested, PM me.

Cheers
Simon
