Recieved some more promising info from Robert at Offroad Boss on Thursday so I thought it would be good to start a new thread.
I sent him a heap of photos of the Sportage suspension early last week, front and rear along with a heap of info including the link to this site <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />.
He has looked at the photos and is over all impressed and pleasantly surprised about the Sportage. The best news is he believes he can sort out the front strut. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> I originally enquired about three inches or four if achivable. His font struts are height adjustuble. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
They are in the middle of organising an offroad competition (King of the Rim) and then will be concentrating on my little project
He has picked up a front strut assembly from the wrecker to measure off. He is hoping that he will be able to adapt their adjustable struts to the bottom fork, if not he will look at what they can do. Best of all is the price will be good.
12 stage adjustable shocks with lengths for the rear extending up to a meter if required. No dust shields to interfere with the rear. Who would of thought. Looks like we are on a winner. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I previously posted in the tyres and suspension that I thought the shocks might be American. They are made in Taiwan.
Any way here a couple of pics of their adjustable struts and of a ultra long rear shock ftted to a Patrol, as well as link to their website. I will keep you posted <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
How good is this looking, adjustable struts, long shocks, front lockers, snorkels, The Sportages are having a resurgence. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" />
