    Any feedback about IRONMAN SUSPENSION, quality of ride, durability?
    A friend of mine told me that they had been in the australian market for long time, I don´t know if I should go with OME or IRONMAN.

    Thanks for your time,

    If price isn't an issue use OME. I've installed the ironman suspension on my '55 and it's great for what it is.... But if you want the best ride use OME. Granted a '55 and an 80 series are different vehicles, but this is truley a case of getting what you pay for.....


    Sidenote: I had the opportunity to meet the owner and president of Ironman in OZ 6 months ago. They've been making springs for a long time. They were originally a horse carriage spring maker, FWIW.

    Cptmud: I have a 3" lift on my 80, its a decent lift and ride is incredibly good both on a off road, though I prefer the latter... :)

    I've got a set of Ironman 2" lifted springs in my HZJ80 Cruiser and they handle well both on and off road. Flexes nicely on a ramp too.

    Thank you all for the imput, I decided to install 850, 863 with n73 and n74e OME, here in Venezuela a lot of people have these set up and they had great results, ironman its getting stronger in the market but its new in this country, by now I prefer going with the most known.

    Thanks for your time, and I will send you info about how it goes.

    Been told by a number of people that they are not much chop, was going to put them in mine because of the cheaper price, but was talked out of it. So went for the OME for the extra bucks a much better setup and truly tested her in OZ.
