Hi everyone,

After a long time I am finally having my suspension fitted.

Installed are:

Extended 50mm forks
40 mm Dobinsons Springs front
New front struts
Everett's sway bar link extenders
35 mm Dobinsons Springs off a jeep TJ
Rav 4 OME shocks
Adjustable pan had rod
Adjustable diff locater (off the front of a live axle hilux)

To be fitted later next week

New ball joints tie rods upper arms etc
Diff drop kit.

seen it today and man is it high. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" />

No longer need to bend down to get into the car.

The Sporty looks hilarious with the standard tyres and rims fitted at the moment. The 35 mm lift TJ springs were the perfect height as the Sporty is dead level front to rear with the 90 mm lift in the front. I will take some measurements from rim to wheel arch to let you all know the height gained. does any one know the stock height? Forgot to take the it before the suspension was put in.

Took it for a quick drive around the in laws back yard and flexed her up. Pan hard is an issue hitting the shock and defiantly need different rims for offset as they had rubbed on the shock as well. I will get photos and post them up.

Have purchased a set of alloy rims off a Grand Vitara XL7 http://auszookers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=37252. to give me some more offset to stop the rear tyre rubbing on the shock and allow for the wider fitment of tyres. 16x7 is the size of the alloy rims with a + 5 offset. Not sure on which size tyre to go,235 x 85 (31.7 x9.5 wide) or 265 x 75 (31.6x 10.4 wide). Hopefully they will be here later in the week as well. They are coming with tyres already fitted 235 60 so at least
I will see how the width looks when they arrive.

looks like I will need to look at the relocation of rear shocks.

will post up photos later in the week with the diff drop fitted.
