I dont think they have a website.
Some Dutch guys I used to trial with, used to buy components from them and they looked pretty good.

Also, Ive seen there suspension on a few vehicles, notably this couples rather nice TLC camper conversion. (they also have HTs Contact details on there website I have just seen - under 'leveranciers')

Good coils for an 80

Thanks for the info Grif - another source also gives the same numbers and email could be: Htsuspension at cs.com

If anyone is interested, the silver 80 on our recent SEQ trip ran HTs hard with a 2 week/2000km fuel & water payload (+ a Hilux on a rope for 2 days!) and didnt miss a beat. One month old OME coils on the other 80 with similar payload broke (though shock age & quality could have something to do with it)

Do you know which springs they had on? The only times I have heard of OME springs breaking are when they have been incorrectly rated.

Heavy duty is all I know - but the car was carrying up to 500L of fuel and all the rest + hard driving and a shagged car may have had something to do with it. Still, you'd think they would last more than a month or two.
A broken coil is no big drama as you may know, and can go unnoticed for weeks. Once in town they did a rather ingenious repair by curving and welding a bit of rebar along the break like a splint. It worked for a week at least.

I have heard of other examples where OME coils have failed within a few 1000kms although OME leaves have always been as good as anything I've used.

Still waiting to hear back from HT.

Chris,

After my Libyan trip in Feb I hope to be able to report on a combination of Eibach springs (H&R B/C HDJ80 Master Rally rear; 47/04 HDJ80VA front) and rear AirLift bags plus Bilstein shocks.

Last time I enquired with Coen of HT SUSPENSION SYSTEMS about their toys he quoted me Eur1800 for the shocks (remote reserv) and four springs, but it was in 2002.
