Finally a reply, saying that i get a refund.
Still only in german so without the other pay pal mail i would not be so sure.
Even though all my mails to them have been in english.

Thinking I might Try that with our customers at my work, only replies in Norwegian no matter what language they use. :)

Yakuza, I bought a trailmaster liftkit as these were the only ones I could find with TUV that gave a 2" lift. I couldn't find anyone in Germany that would ship to Norway, but they ship happily within the EU, so I had them sent to the Netherlands, and family brought them with them when they came on vacation. Alternatively, if you live reasonably close to the border, you could ship poste restante to Sweden.
I bought from 4-wheel-parts.de, customer service is excellent, and they communicate in English.

On, Thanks, I could try that. But they where willing to send when I ordered, but not at all able it seems.
Anyways there are no other EU country that have any problem with shipping to Norway, ever.
But I am done with germany now. No more.

Note to self or others with the same problem as Trailmaster is now made of unobtainium as said elsewhere in here.
KYB 343435 dampers for Suzuki Grand Vitara II can fit. More or less the same ends and correct length it seems from the KYB catalogue.

My only concern is the rear axle weigth of a Grand Vitara is 1210kg and my Jimny is 790kg. 
Still it is the better way as these might work like a heavy duty kit. 
( I had Corsa dampers on my SJ once and that was way off :D )   

I have a pair ordered on the way and will come back when mounted.

If they do not work as expected I can still sell them to someone in the suzuki community with the correct car.

For future reference I have just started suppling these.

We have given up on Trailmaster and have been looking for a suitable replacement to stock. James has these as a kit on his new Gen4. The ride is slightly less soft than the Trailmasters which reduces the roll compare to Trailmaster, they seem to deal with the potholes and sleeping policemen quite will at an initial test. (we have only had them fitted since last week)

I can get the shock/springs separately.
