So how are your driving impressions so far with the Oztec?

Cheers!

Again, I will do a bit of dlriving and bush work with it and post some follow up measurements in a few weeks as a point of interest.
Thanks to all who contributed to my research with there knowledge and advice.

Hi Andrew

I have not done many kms since having the suspension fitted yet,but my initial impression is that the car now steers better,brakes better and does not pitch and roll any where near like it was.

Also it handles dips etc in the road better with the front end in particular recovering better and quicker to give overall better handling.

I got the tyres fitted up this morning and may go for a drive up the bush today or tomorrow for a bit of a shakedown.

I ran thr tape measure over it after the tyres and it has settled a little in the rear and come up 2-3 mm in the front.

Here's a couple of questions for you.

The new 5899 bump stops look longer than the EOM units.
Can the be trimmed and is there any advantage to doing so,ie more travel and articulation of the rear.

I seem to recall someone mentioned it recently but I was not really paying full attention at the time.

Cheers
Damo

Yes the 5899 rubber cones are longer but from the reports I have is that there is not an issue with rear wheel articulation. They are located inboard of the axle articulation stops and I suspect a heavier spring rate coil will have a greater effect on suspension tuck.

Default Oztec KingsToolangi bush shakedown report

Ok
so purely in the name of research I went out to Rocky Track at Toolangi this arvo and drove the bypass track to the right.

For people familiar with the area they will know it.

I aired down to 22psi and headed up.

The bypass can be pretty challenging in itself, and requires slow speed crawling and carefull wheel placement with medium and larger loose rock which moves underneath you constantly.

The tracks in this area change constantly with the seasons and traffic and trucks with oversized tyres.

I crawled up the bypass about 2/3rds of the way in first low without the locker.

At this point I needed to engage the locker to complete the track easily with minimal strain on the car.

The suspension seemed to allow good articulation and kept the wheels on the ground pretty well where possible but this is a full on, shaly,steep climb.

I could have dropped another 2-4 psi from the tyres for a bit better traction and would have walked it more easily,but having said that I did not get excessive tyre spin, but that extra 2-4 psi would have made for a nicer ride.

I only got the tyres fitted this morning so I was being a bit conservative

The suspension performed really well and soaked up slow,medium and higher speed bush tracks nicely.

Pretty happy so far.

Hi All

I just thought I would give an update on my ride heights as the new suspension has been in for just over 3 months now and should have well and truly settled in.

LHR 571
RHR- 572
RHF-543
LHF-553

Cheers
