This has been said many times, BUT I have to say it again.

YOU WILL NOT GET BETTER SERVICE ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

Yesterday Darryll sorted me out with a set of progressive coils and Bilstein shocks in the back of the tuna. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:


So this morning I realised I forgot my OEM coils and shocks with Darrell, so I sent him a quick email asking him how much he would charge to fit it to my toppi's Fortuner.


And this is his reply;

"Hi Wayne.
Wont charge you anything my buddy send the guy around ill sort it out!"


Now this is above and beyond my expectations, and off course I will insist on paying.

So if you are in the market for suspension don't mess around. Go see Darrell! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Love the suspension on my Tuna. Got myself in a spot of bother recently :slap: but look at the articulation ...

A bit off the point. But what will really be good is for us as a forum to acknowledge good service and good attitude etcc received from suppliers and Commercial members where its applicable. Some of these guys really go the extra mile. This should be done say for example at our forum CYF..Jm2Cw.

Just the front suspension raisers, rear extended shackles, and bilstein shocks on the rear. Just on the rear you can feel the difference!
