    hello all,

    Relatively new to the 4wd world. Have just got myself an Amarok and in the process of prepping for a trip through Aus.
    Wondering how the factory suspension will hold up and how vital it is to get an upgrade to the suspension to avoid catastrophe off road. Won't be doing major challenging tracks but you just never know what Aus will throw at you so may end up doing a little bit of the good stuff!
    Any tips would be great, money is running low with all the purchase, wondering is suspension is a place I could save a few dollars...

    How long is a piece of string.....?
    Before thinking of suspension mods, you have to know what you are capable to do with the standard suspension. You may find the standard suspension is perfectly adequate for your requirements. The Amarok is a very capable off-road vehicle in its standard fit out. I suggest you try out your vehicle and yourself on a dedicated 4wd training course before spending any money on upgrades.

    Decent tyres for the terrain would be far more benefit than suspension.

    Proper all terrain tyres like Goodride SL369 in 265/75x16" is all you need. You only need to upgrade your suspension if you have a heavy aftermarket bumper with winch fitted
