Ek het Doninsons vere in myne, en ek het gevind dat as jy 'n blad veer voor uithaal aan elke kant en dan die Camil coil-overs bysit, dan het jy weer dieselfde hoogte. Die rygeried is definitief beter met die coils se medewerking - die voorste suspensie voel amper soos 80 of 100 series cruiser as jy op die oop pad ry. Dit werk goed, veral as jy in elk geval jou shocks moet vervang op 'n stadium

Ek is nog onseker of Camil 'n goeie ding is. Shock mounts is ontwerp vir shocks and dampening, nie om deel van die voertuig se gewig te dra nie, dis waarvoor die spinge is, en daar is al ounes wat shock mounts gebreek het op party voertuie met Camil suspensie. Daar is ook ouens wat shock mount breek met gewone shocks, so of die Camil bydra tot die probleem, is ek nie seker nie....maar ek dink dit dra wel by tot die probleem.

Zantus ek het ook aan die selfde gedink , :shock:

Ek bestuur n Garage en ry baie keer Coke ens rond
Laai 80 kaste 2L op my bak ( 2L coke +-2kg + krat )
+- 960 - 1000kg . Geen probleme nie
Dis agter , Daar kan ek verstaan (miskien buig , maar nie seker nie)
Voor is dit amper onmoontlik om iets te buig .

Ek dink dit gaan net ook wees hoe jy die voertuig hanteer

Ek is baie gelukkig sover .

Maar ons almal dink anders ,

Gaan nou my lux verkoop en Land Cr kry

Geldige punt Zantus - maar ek dink 'n paar goeie gas skokbrekers in rowwe 4x4 toestande sit ook maar baie kragte op die shock mounts. EN, die ou Hilux se shock mounts is redelik fris. Ek's ook steeds baie gelukkig - en het dit net voor opgesit, maar ek moet eerlik wees - ek ry nie vreeslik baie in ernstige 4x4 toestande nie

One of our newbies Fransdw2002 (post something for us) recently fitted a Camil suspension on his 2007 IFS, 2007 SC, Hilux 2.5 D4D. I know that he had a good 5cm bodylift and he seems happy.

Hi Niel and every body! I am very interested in this topic especially ito the results on corrugated roads. I found Namibia's corrugations realy got the better of my 2x4 KZ. Tyre pressure did not seem to make much difference..

Riaan, sal so maak maar ek dink dit was R8500 inclusive (and fitted).

Hy het n goeie body lift gekry glo my. Ek het agter hom gery en ek sien hoe die mense die bakkie bekyk.

Brutus, my geliefde Nissan HardBody d/k het Camils op vanaf dag 1, dis nou 20 000 km later en geen probleme nie.
Ek sal wqeer Camils opsit - gaan net vir Piet slaan en slaan en slaan en dan boelie TOT HY VIR MY LANGER SHOCKS MAAK VIR AGTER ,,, ek verloor artikulasie want daar is nog baie "travel" op die vere, dan is die skok arm op sy vertsste gestrek .

Those things look like they are very short on travel ... I would imagine that they limit articulation :problem:

ek weet wat ek weet - en die enigste stel wat ek met oop gemoed aanbeveel is CAMIL - ek ry nou op my 2e stel - 'wheel travel' beperk?
I think not - die fotos spreek vanself. BRUTUS is met CAMIL toegerus; 'Silver' is Iron Man en Chuck [Ewald se Chucky ja .. is OME --- oordeel maar self:

Mac, those pics, even though they don't show much, prove my point more than yours, I'm afraid. The first two vehicles (pics) show almost no articulation while the last shows at least some.
Remember, without decent wheel travel you can't have decent articulation, and the first restrictor of wheel travel is the shocks. They reach their full extension long before the srings do. The extension on my OME shocks is almost as long as the overall length of those Camil's!
I'm sorry mate, but I'm not convinced. :eh:

Andy - I fail to see your argument holding any water - the first 2 vehicles ... the white one [aka BRUTUS is fitted with CAMIL shocks with coil over , the silver one is fitted with Iron Man [the same as OME - BUT look at the distance the wheel hangs out [down'] those distances [wheel travel] are the same
Then - The Patrol has OME fitted - and again, the "wheel travel' [how far the wheel can stretch away downwards - also The same as the two Hard Bodies
The articulation on the Patrol ... well, that is SFA and the Hard Bodies are IFS ... no comparison there.

But as far as shocks go - its the same as tyres ... and bakkies. I know the Nissan is the better product, you think your Toyota is the better vehicle. I fit Bridgestones only, the rest of my mates drive on BFG .
I like LINDT, my son prefers Cadbury.

Blum - hoeveel myle het daai Camils al geloop? Wat is die toestand ? As ide prys B G is en dis die regte goed - dan soek ek hulle graag

So terloops - Die Terrano loop met verstelbare RANCH 9000's - en Dwergie wil dit swop vir Camil sodra hulle begin moeg raak ...
