Okay! So I have just returned from a 3 day trip at Landcruiser Park with my new outback armour lift (springs and shocks). So far I am very happy with the spring and shock combo.
On the street I wouldn't even know I was lifted. In fact I find that the car actually rides better and corners much flatter than it did with the standard shocks (129,000km's old and what I considered to be still in good condition). When the road goes to dirt it handles the minor bumps and corrugations beautifully. Very impressive and compliant.
Offroad the lift was definitely still comfortable and at no time did I consider the 1 3/4 inch lift to be lacking. I was concerened not getting a full 2 inch lift likes some other brands offered but I did not find it lacking in clearence at anytime. The only negative I could see (maybe I had higher expectations in that I was told they have the longest travel shock of any lift available for the WK2) was that the downward travel did not go much further than where the wheel actually sits with load on it. I found myself see sawing quite a few times which made it difficult in trying to predict if I was going to come down with a gentle drop or a hard thud.
Other than that no topping out issues, no thuds or knocking sounds. The outback armour lift was tight, compliant and very capable. I give it two thumbs ups and consider it to be the best thing I have bought for my Jeep thus far!
