Endless Horizon Outfitters is pleased to announce that we are the new US Distributor for the amazing Slinky Long Travel Suspension systems! As many of you know these suspension systems have been proven for years in all conditions in Australia and are now available here in the US as the "Ultimate Tourer" suspension. You won't find a better ride, better performance or more flex from any other bolt-on suspension system out there. Whether you want to play in the rocks, go fast in the desert, or load up for a 2 month overlanding adventure, the Slinky kits will handle it all!

I'm excited to see another option for Slinky as well. Will you be importing kits by order only, or do you plan to stock kits on the shelves as well? (I'm especially interested in the 50mm) Also, will pricing be the same as previous U.S. offered Slinky kits?

Plans are to build up inventory so there is stock on the shelves. Will take a little bit of time for that to happen fully but we want to have kits available when orders are placed. Pricing should be more or less the same.

What's the lead time to order stage 4 for fj80? And also do you have anyone you recommend in WA for installation or would you say that I can pull it off with my software engineering prowess and jacks and garage tools

4-6 weeks is when the first shipment is expected.

Speaking from experience, I've installed the Stage 1 and the Stage 4 on my own truck and it's not terribly difficult but MUCH easier with the truck on a lift.

Awesome to see.. I'll be interested in what options will look like for a 98' LX470. Currently running stock AHC in good condition, but a lift is on the horizon as I'm adding bumpers, rack, and a RTT.

Between the bay and the Ocean Vic Aus.
@sorich 100s we have done like 3 a week since 2002 as the main touring rig of choice here in Aus until the 200s really took off.

From welding the arms, fixing the breaking T bar adjusters, and fitting 35s, #slinkylongtravel set ups, we have done more 100s than 80s in our years actually.











We also have 3 degree HD ball joint OE Supplier bushed UCAs that take a factory ball joint also as part of that range.

Have you guys measured the difference in available articulation between a stock LX/LC 100 and a full Slinky/Icon setup that's in the 2"-3" lift range?

I was looking for prices on the your website and couldn't find the Slinky stuff... Here's what I found for 80 series suspension components:

Suspension

Is the Slinky suspension listed somewhere else?

Also, can you tell me if the shock lengths between the 50mm and 75mm stage 1 kits are different?

Thanks,

In addition to the above I'd like to know if the 50mm coils are just 75mm coils cut down or actually made to provide less lift. Also are the carrying capacities the same for all "Intermediate" lifts?

The first shipment coming through Endless Horizon Outfitters is still on the way and should arrive in a few weeks. Final pricing from Kevin at EHO hasn't been set, nor have the kits been added to the website just yet since the kits are not yet on hand.

I don't anticipate pricing changing much (if at all) from where the kits have been priced in the past through Redline Land Cruisers.

I'll have to check Darren regarding shock lengths between the 50mm and the 75mm kits. I think the shocks are the same but don't take that as fact yet until I can verify with Darren.

Same goes for the coils. I am fairly sure that the 50mm coils are manufactured as such and are not just cut down 75mm coils. But I will double check that with Darren.

I'll respond later with final answers after I talk to Darren or Darren can respond himself.
