Several months back I came across this post from a reputable fellow in an Australian Troopy Facebook Page about Terrain Tamer releasing parabolic springs for the 75 series Troopy and Ute. For me personally (and please if anybody has any personal experience with parabolics I'd love to get feedback on this as well) the softer ride of the parabolic springs and the much lighter leaf packs seem like the best type of suspension for a leaf sprung truck that is personally 90% used for leisure with minimal weight in the truck (I'm not shoving gravel or 8 miners in the back of my Troopy).

Got talking with the guy, and i've been going back and worth with him for some time, and placed a deposit for a set myself for whenever they are manufactured. I figured I would let the MUD-public know, and to see if anybody else is interested in a set near the West Coast. Shipping is probably not going to be super cheap, and if anybody else wants some and share the burden of shipping, let me know. The deposit is $500AUD, appx. $360USD, and the total cost is TBD but I imagine it to be comparable to your standard suspension lift kit plus a donor organ of choice for shipping. Also, the actual date that they will be made is TBD. On the phone with the guy today, he said that they're testing and evaluating a more refined 2nd version of the leafs, and after 8 weeks, if TT is satisfied with the test, then that will be when they begin the first batch.

Let me guess, you've been talking to Simon? hahaha

I am going down the road of parabolic springs myself in the future. A lot of people rate them very highly that have them on their troopy. There's a video that I saved of a fella having parabolics on his hzj75 and the amount of articulation it gets is insane compared to regular leafs.

I went to a local TT dealer and got recommended to pay them a visit fully loaded (everything you roughly plan to take when going on trips) for them to see at what kg rating leaf to install. Of course that will be a different case for you but not a bad idea to get a baseline of how much you're planning to carry on a regular basis and go from there.

Dutchy4x4, yes, Simon-actual.

Yeah, every time I asked someone from down under on what kind of suspension they recommend - every. single. time. there's a resounding "parabolics" that follow. I do recall the video I think you're talking about, and the performance gain just seems too good to be true. Simon did recommend I weigh my truck, but as I mentioned before, I hate weight (part of why I also like the parabolics), and I really only have a front and rear bar to account for.

Yeah good stuff.

It'll be interesting to see how they go articulation and weight wise.

Though I have many things to do before I even touch the suspension I am definitely going the parabolic route.
