What's the smoothest riding monotube lifts? Nothing over 2", not real interested in flex, or serious offroading, just looking for a nice smooth ride, it's a daily driver on rough highways that sees occasional beach or offroad.

The ute has;
- Mickey Thompson ATZ p3's 275/70/17 on King D Locker steel wheels X 5
- Steel Bullbar with winch and side rails (Ironman)
- Will have second battery in engine bay
- Toyota HDA alloy tray with enclosed dog box, roughly 80kg?
- High Lift Jack, Toolbox, recovery pack 40kg?
- Carries driver and one passenger plus around 60kg luggage
- Genuine Toyota towbar

Have so far had quotes on ARB OME 2" Nitrocharger Kit, Fulcrum Bilstein 2" B6 Kit. What other brands in this price range should I be checking out?Image

You can’t go past the OME BP51s. Being a bypass design you can have good damping at all suspension speeds. Bloody expensive - but worth it.

G'day Mhewitt, thanks for your feedback mate, I too like the BP51's for that reason, but I just don't think I can make the wallet stretch that far at the moment... Interestingly enough I've stumbled on to the Outback Armour Adjustable range, almost $2k cheaper than the BP51's and can not find one single bad review on them anywhere yet?.. Expedition Pro Adjustables with Outback Armour coils and leaves, as well the obligatory greasavle shackles, new bushes etc, wheel alignment... Around $3200 fitted?
