Monster Rides Re-Kon Suspension System for ML/MN Triton

Postby Monster Rides on Thu Sep 24, 2015 11:16 pm

Hey,

Thought is was about time we got a dedicated thread up again on the forum detailing the Re-kon suspension package we have for the ML/MN Triton.

Our Re-kon line of suspension has been designed for maximum wheel travel, ride quality and versatility to suit a range of uses and lifts.

This kit features:

1. Front Coilovers @ $1295
Adjustable height front coilover with lifts of 1.5" through to 4" available with the movement of the coil seat up or down on the threaded body of the strut.

These coilovers come fully assembled and ready to bolt straight in, just remove your current assembled strut and then install the MR Re-kon item. No need to disassemble the current one to use the coil top hat.
We use a brand new factory top hat, and the C Spanner is also included to adjust the coilvoer also included.

The valving on these shocks is superb, and the ability to dial in the exact amount of lift you need is really a nice feature.
It takes the guess work and lottery out of front end lift compared to a static height strut as you can allow for and re-adjust the pre load on the coil after install once that first initial bit of sag comes into the coil as it take son the weight of the front end and aftermarket accessories you have fitted.
Then as the coil sags over time (As they all do) you can keep adjusting the coil seat up to accommodate for the loss of ride height... Obviously the coil will have a limit to the amount it can be adjusted in terms of height and time as well, but it's a handy option as a short term solution until you replace the coil in due time.



2. Long Travel Rear Shocks @ $440

We combine the coilovers and rear shock as a package with some discounted pricing:

A. Complete kit:
2 x Assembled coilovers with your choice of coil (King, Dobinson, Lovells in a spring rate to suit your needs)
1 x Coilover Adjusting C Spanner
2 x Rear Shocks
$1595


Freight TBA once you advise of the location.

Note - To run lifts of over 2" there are certain things which become compromised and it takes some work to get these larger lifts to work.
- Obviously more CV angle and the associated increased danger fo CV failure
- Bump and Droop stops will need to be altered.
- Brake lines will need to be extended.
- Wheel alignment issues and UCA clearance can also be factors.

It is important to consider all the factors that will effect your vehicle when lifting suspension and adding bigger tyres.
We suggest you consult a local engineering to ensure what you have planned can be approved and insured etc.

Warranty: All our Re-kon gear is covered by a 2 Year Warranty. Unlimited kilometers in this time.


3. Leafs:

As far as leaf spring options we can recommend the Sax product, check out the thread here:
http://www.newtriton.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=11288
Pricing from $1150 - $1450 depeniung on the load spec of the leafs.

Also the Dobinson leafs are a good quality product at a reasonable price, with options to suit different load requirements. Pricing form $685

All leafs are supplied with new bushes, u-bolts and standard length greasable shackles.

We like to discuss you vehicle set up and it's always a good idea to get your truck weighed before we start so we can dial in the exact leaf that will best suit your needs.

Hi

I run the DMS front. Good to see the speed sensor mounts and locking height adjustment "nut".

1. what are the underlying dampeners, ie where made?

2. The spring rate of the coils.

3. Got around to rear dampeners for the Triton's brother, Challenger?

4. Expected Kms before replacement or repair assuming they can be rebuilt.

Cheers

Hey Ent... Thanks for the questions... These features are pretty important on a well set up coilover to suit the Triton.


1. what are the underlying dampeners, ie where made?

Made in Asia to our specs.


2. The spring rate of the coils.

Whatever you need to suit the weight of your front end. We can offer a wide range of coils form different manufacturers.


3. Got around to rear dampeners for the Triton's brother, Challenger?

No... Sorry we have had maybe two customers ask for them over the past few years.


4. Expected Kms before replacement or repair assuming they can be rebuilt.

Our Rekon shocks are fully rebuildable... In terms of your query on expected kms before rebuild... How long is a piece of string?

We offer a 2 year warranty with unlimited kilometres in this time.

A city based vehicle that travels 150'000 kms a year on the highway going to and from the city each day for 90% of it's life will need a rebuild different to a vremote location ehicle that does 15'000 kms a year purely on corrugations on a large cattle property for example.
Weight of the vehicle will also play a huge factor in how quickly the coil needs replacing as well, the leafs also.
Sorry... but there are too many variables to give a straight forward answer to your question... It really is a case by case basis.

Thanks

I don't think there is a MR and DMS connection anymore there was once.

I suspect Ent was lamenting his DMS doesn't have speed sensor mounts or a lock ring.

The lack of locking ring has as yet not been an issue but the missing speed sensor mounts is annoying. Done one with a hose clamp but rather an oversight.
