I have recently upgraded my Fortuner's suspensions to Ironman Nitro gas comfort kit. It took around 1000km or so to bed in, I do find them much more pliant and comfortable to ride on.

Some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Pardon me for my ignorance but isnt there any lift option available for cars? I just bought a Ford Aspire S and every time it kisses Earth I get stabbed in the heart. I use it for pan India travel and at this rate it will be dead before my EMIs are done.
PS, there arew hydraulic lift kits available abroad that can raise or lower a car with the flick of a switch. Anything like that in our fair country?

You may want to check-out the Rogerab products that could be useful

http://rogermotors.com/all-products/

I have not used them, so do not have any first-hand experience

I have ordered OME suspension from air90.com for my D4D Fortuner. Requesting leads on capable mechanics in Mumbai. Thanks in advance.

Reason I preferred ARB over Ironman:
  1. Reliability - Yet to hear a suspension failure of ARB
  2. Warranty - No questions asked international replacement warranty (3 Years or 60,000 kms)
  3. Ride quality feedback - Most of the online reviews suggest ARB to be better in terms of ride quality and handling

My stock suspension broke during my Leh trip. So I was not very happy with the Toyota stock setup and hence decided to upgrade. Link (One year with the Toyota Fortuner 4x4 AT : My Furteela Ghonga)

Will post detailed review on installation and ride once installed.
