But don’t take our word for it, see what other owners have had to say after installing our package.
I know of two people with stage 1 Slinky and two people with stage 4 Slinky, all who are very happy and have had no trouble. The ride and handling with the Icons is excellent.
Had an Slinky Long Travel kit fitted. Previously had OME heavy front medium rear. Ride is chalk and cheese on road and off, travel in the rear is amazing and the front hasn’t yet lifted a leg on the bunny tracks near home! No regrets, thats for sure!
I have the Slinky Stage 1.
Not up there in terms of remote reservoirs and that fancy pants stuff but, in terms of happiness…I’m happy with the setup for what I do and have done with the car since. I was sold the suspension and had it installed locally. No comparison whatsoever between the stock and the Slinky. While the stock suspension did great up at Cape York, I was very glad I had the Slinky on at the Summit in the High Country. Handled it all nicely.
Plus one for Slinky stage one. As much as I like all the remote reservoir gear, in my eyes it’s just something else that can fail, too many links in the chain if you will. So far very happy with my Slinky stage 1, bang for buck.
If I could only do one mod to the car it would be this, along with the LPG it is something that you notice every minute of every day that you drive the car. From 4wding with other mates, doing the highway kms between To Melbourne for work, through to all kinds of trips (in WA at the moment). I’m in it quite a bit, looks like I’ll put 50-60,000kms on the FJ in its first year.
