My OKA had 330,000km on the clock when I boought it.
I fitted coils around the rubber aelerons at the rear to give a bit more support.
That was 150,000km ago.
Both the (original) aelerons and the coils are still fine.

I'll grab you a part number and try to locate a set at a warehouse near you on Monday. You will get them cheaper and faster that way.
The set at the link Defenderbeam posted shows it fits years 2003-2009. Does anyone know if that same set will fit a 1999 or is a different set required.
They have units that cover 1987-2002
If the dealer in Odessa can't come up with some, I'll probably order from here:

Engineer, did you get set up with some Timbrens or a substitute?
Is the hardness on small bumps a result of the truck hitting the bumper stops or from a light truck not compressing the springs very far? I didn't look at mine when it was relatively light and it never occurred to me that it would be hitting the bumper stops.
So replacing the bump-stops with these timbren things should bring the suspension to a more gradual stop, when it does bottom out. I think this would be further helped with better shock-absorbers, primarily stiffer rebound damping.
Thanks. I will probably give them a try. If things go as planned I'll be driving mine over 5k miles in about 6 weeks this summer so a better ride would be beneficial, even though I'd say there is a night and day difference between it's ride unloaded and it's current ride.
