Montero V98W TD 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys -  

The agent indicated that both my front shocks have to be replaced, and quoting 100K , which i presume is quite outrageous.

KYB from agents is available at 20K  , but a contact wanted me to look at ARB Oldman EMU , or Bilstein which would be more reliable, than the KYBs.

Any advice ? Will KYB not be the optimal choice for Montero?

KYB meets the basic functional specifications required for the car to operate (that is what manufacturer's  spare parts do !). SO it gives a good balance of usability under all conditions. Then some after market pars are there to improve performance in certain areas whilst keeping other areas at the same level as before or compromising it in some areas (whilst remaining within manufacturer's recommended thresholds). Then some after market parts are so cheap and crappy that it just makes the car suck. 

The brands that you have listed are reputable brands that are known to have decent product ranges that improve performance off-road or provide a slightly better alternative to the standard stock suspension. They are typically more expensive, especially in a country like SL where market is limited and duty, etc are quite high. So yes..by all means take a look at them....see if it meets your requirements.
