    EFS Suspension Kit

    Hi Guys,

    OME will soon have some competition. EFS are currently developing their kit for the Amarok.

    They are using my Amarok for the R&D, and will hopefully have a kit within the next few weeks.

    Will keep this thread updated with the progress.

    RE: EFS Suspension Kit

    I have a set of test shocks in the rear at the moment.

    Must say it has made a considerable difference! Much softer and smoother ride. Doesnt feel like the back end is constipated and bouncing around all the time. Should get a bit more travel out of it too.

    They are busy with front shocks, and alternative leaves and springs. also looking at ways of getting around the driveshaft angles to get more lift out of it. Swaybars (and possibly swaybar disconnects) are potential products too.

    RE: EFS Suspension Kit

    Thanks for the update. I am down for the OME kit, but still waiting for the production run on parts. If someone else comes up with more than 20mm, I might be tempted to cancel my OME lift

    Has EFS released their suspension upgrade as a kit now?
    I had my sights on the OME but just got the price and now looking at other options.

    Not yet, they are still busy with their replacement struts and rear leaves.

    I'll call them tomorrow for an update.

    RE: EFS Suspension Kit

    Still R&D

    I'll be changing over to new struts and leaves in the next 2 weeks hopefully, and then evaluate from there.

    RE: EFS Suspension Kit

    I was in at EFS on Thursday last week for some more trial fitting/measuring etc.

    They believe that in the next 4-6 weeks the kit should be finalised and then commercially available within 2 weeks after that.

    Will update as soon as I have more info!
