  • Front strut problem (Dobinsons)

    Hey guys,

    I've been doing front strut bushes and Dobinsons have replaced them no questions asked, the second set are now also wearing after 6000km. Been in contact with Dobinsons and they are replacing both front struts after some investigation. The problem I seem to be having is at full articulation the struts hit the upper control arm, they said it may be an early batch that the internal bump stop may be wrong or has had an issue.
    The service i've received from Dobinsons has been fantastic, their after sales service is better than I've ever received anywhere and they look after their customers. I'm waiting on new struts to arrive and will get them fitted up and hopefully the problem will be gone.
    Anyone looking at replacing suspension.....seriously look at Dobinsons, i've been really happy with their suspension and even happier with their after sales service, really worth buying their products, they're also Australian.

    Mate, they are my local suspension shop and I have to agree, they really are good to their customers and I got no complaints about my setup. I went the whole hog with them, springs, shocks, struts, bushes. Its all good.

      Great to hear they are 100% standing behind their products.

        i'm actually a reseller for dobinsons and am now able to sell on this forum and have to agree they do back their product.

        They have modified the bush slightly in the bottom of the struts on the gen 3's to overcome a binding issue on full articulation with lifted units, happens in very few cases but they have made the change anyway.

        so if anyone is looking for dobinsons gear either suspension or accessories give me a yell, will soon have a page up on here under the business name and we do only forum member pricing.

          Yeh their service is second to none, can't fault them. They are replacing BOTH front struts at no cost to me.
