Harsh Ride

Single Cab, 2015, 15000 miles, owned from new,owner driver, cared for.
Could anyone advise who to talk to regarding a softer all round shock absorber set up. The OEM is so hard (I have had 3 older L200's since the 90's) it is likely to destroy itself in time and if it doesn't do that it will destroy me!

Welcome to the forum. There's a number of options, but a few more questions if we may? What do you use it for? Do you have a canopy? Are you running standard wheels/tyres?

Helo Tek, Its used mainly on a farm/runabout with a Truckman canopy and is on genuine Mitsubishi 17" 6 spoke alloys.

Try the ronniecabers method and put some weight in the back and see if that makes any difference, there's various folks who've added weight to maintain the springs and balance the ride. Otherwise, you might want to look at an old man emu (via ARB) setup, or other suitable aftermarket options. If you follow your welcome in and message the admin a few details about yourself, and upgrade yourself to a regular colored name, there's a wealth of articles in the fiddling section to do with suspension
