So what happens when a suspension guru and two 4X4 media hacks walk into a bar?

A lot of people were surprised when I first bought the Amarok. In the past, my 4X4 vehicles of choice have been Japanese brands, and going Euro wasn’t an easy decision. But, I have always liked the look of the Amarok and, working as I do with vehicle suspension systems, appreciated its amazing ride quality.
If you plan on touring, towing, need more clearance or would just like a better driving and handling 4X4, then you’ll be wanting to upgrade its suspension, sooner rather than later, and there are plenty of aftermarket options available for the popular 4X4 makes and models. But what about fitting it yourself and saving a few dollars, dollars that could be better spent on buying a better quality suspension kit in the first place?

Note: This fitting guide covers the Holden Colorado RG (05/2012 onwards), the Isuzu D-MAX (05/2012 onwards) and the LDV T60 (2016 onwards).

In this DIY series, we’re going to take a look at fitting new suspension to popular late-model 4X4s at home, on the ground and with a minimum of fuss. Or in other words, we’re going to pass on some of our model specific fitting tricks, to save you time and keep your frustration levels in check.
