Default Re: Feedback on Ironman Suspension?

Let me be frank here. I've tried TJM , Ironman, OME and now I'm on Bilstein! I've wasted a lot of money and my slow speed ride is still the pits!
I'm in the same boat you are and my advice is not to spend any money on shockers and springs.
I think we need redesigned softer springs to handle to slow speed ride.

Hi all,

Anyone tried ironman leaf spring setup on a Gypsy? If so, any feedback would be highly appreciated. My primary requirements are a good lift and a slightly better ride comfort, both of which - I am told - will be met by the ironman setup.

thanks in advance for your inputs...

I have it in my Gypsy. The leafsprings; Shocks; Steering damper and PU Bushes - all by Ironman.

The ride is phenomenal to say the least. Worth every rupee spent for the setup.

Will i recommend it. A big YES. This is the single best investment a Gypsy owner can do.

Can you share approximate costs and did you also checked ARB? Can you post some pictures of your ride?

Even if I could fix the ride at just the Gypsy rear without giving up on reliability, I would be a customer. The front does not trouble me anywhere like the rear does - that one does serious damage to driver/ passenger backs. And not playing with the front set up would be good for peace of mind for safe driving on highways.

For the rear, I am not interested in marginal improvements, those would not be worth the trouble and can be replicated by just loading the rear with a couple of hundred kilos of load.
