  • Pedders Suspension

    What are Pedders coils and shocks like compared to OME, Ironman, Bilstein or Koni? I understand that Pedders is quite a well established brand in Australia and I have just heard that they have distributors here in South Africa as well. It seems that they have shocks and coils for the Gen 3 NM/NP, so I am curious (over here we generally only see OME or Ironman).

    From my understanding.. pedders don't make their own shocks or springs, they are re-branded from another make... guessing here, i think it's monroe??.. but someone else on here should have better info.

        Having had Pedders suspension on the NB Pajero, fitted against my preference to replace OME by a mechanic who thought he was doing me a favour on price, and having a set fitted to a Camry that I bought, I wouldn't have them on a vehicle ever again.

        On the Paj, had the fronts replaced 3 times under warranty and on the Camry, though they had only been fitted 4 months, I had them replaced with standard Toyota units with in a month.

          My m8 down the road had Pedders shocks put on his gen 2 paj less than 6 months ago and both front shocks are shot!

          I got Iron man shocks and coils coz they where cheaper than OME. Only had them 5 months now but I have done a fair bit of offroading since then and so fare they have impressed!

            Got pedders shocks on mine. No complaints. Seems like they are a heavy duty version, couldnt tell you any specifics (havnt investigated...)

            Ride is a little springy (maybe an indication on something?) but it doesnt feel off in any way- its quite smooth and stable.

              Bilstiens and King or Lovell Springs

              If you take standard aftermarket shocks on bad dirt roads you will break them.
