Need help down under

Hello, I am hoping someone local to Queensland can contact King Springs for me. I have emailed them several times about buying the 60mm upgraded springs for the Discovery III and they have yet to respond. I am under a tight time frame and need to have these delivered to USA rather soon!

Their contact info is here:
http://www.kingsprings.com.au/

Previously, I was emailing with Kris Tarrant of Sales and Technical Services at KingSprings, but he has not responded for a few days now.

Thanks in advance,

Nathan Woods

There's seems to be a variety of answers regarding available heights. The key appears to be in the strength of the coil. Their standard duty coils provide a 35mm lift. Their heavy duty coils provide anywhere from 35mm to 50mm, depending on the how heavily loaded the vehicle is. I have heard from several sources that they have received 60mm springs from KingSprings, but King cannot or will not confirm it. They have also stated that a 60mm spring would not fit with factory shocks, as the shocks are too short.

Being unsure what size will work best for me, I tried to order both Std and HD springs, but the shipping cost is 150% more than the springs, and is ecconomically unpaletable. I will probably get 50mm springs from Pedders, which has them in stock in the USA (odd, but true).

Regards,

NW
