Calmini Lift for \'88 Trooper

It doesn't look like too many people actually visit this board, but I will post anyway. I have an '88 Trooper, and I really wouldn't mind a little more ground clearance. I have the torsion bars turned up, but a little more altitude sure wouldn't hurt the approach angles. Everything I have heard about other Calmini products seems positive, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with their 3" Trooper lift?

Re: Calmini Lift for \'88 Trooper

Yeah, check the "does anyone ever come here?" thread, I already explained things there. Three points of order:

1.go to for an extremely active off-road-based Isuzu community

2.don't buy from Calmini unless you like buying expensive parts that do a job that much less expensive parts can do equally well. For anything Trooper related, go to Matt is a great guy, he'll get you on the right path.

3.without doing a SAS, the only way to lift the front of these trucks is cranking the torsion bars..... so just be aware of that.....

Re: Calmini Lift for \'88 Trooper

Good info, thanks Strawmyers. The independent4x site looks good. I have actually been tossing around the idea of a solid front axle. I even have a GM front end that I could put under it. I have also thought about a toyota front end, but I have not checked width yet. I have already cranked the torsion bars with pretty good results. It is probably just back to stock height again (with 280k on the odo the fronts bars are a little tired). I wonder, are the V6 bars a different spring rate? There is a winch and a new bumper in the future, but since I am in the middle of selling and buying a house right now, no parts are on the near horizon. The Trooper has been a faithful commuter (goes over 140 miles a day) and I think it deserves a little sprucing up.
