Re: suzuki to geo

The diesel kits are for the Samurai. Although grapevine says they are working on one for the Track/Kick

Re: suzuki to geo

The sidekick and tracker are the same with trim changes. It's the sami the is different with somewhat
different drivetrain.

Re: suzuki to geo

The Samurai is completely different from the Sidekick/Tracker.

A Samurai has:

-Solid axles.
-Spring suspension.
-Trucklike frame that makes the vehicle ride higher off the ground
-Was only available in the US with a 5-speed manual transmission.
-Was only available with a 1.3 liter engine.
- Has a divorced transfer case.
- only came in two versions - a 2-door convertable and a 2-door hard top (known as a "tintop").
The Sidekick/Tracker has:

-Coil spring suspension
-Independent front suspension.
-automotive-like frame that allows the vehicle to sit lower to the ground.
-Is/was available with a 5-speed manual transmission and a 3-speed automatic transmission
-Was available with a 1.6 8-valve engine and a 1.6 16-valve engine (newer versions have larger 4-cylinder engines).
-Has an "integrated" transfer case.
-Was available as a 2-door soft and hardtop along with a 4-door hardtop.

About the only thing that might be easily swapped between a Samurai and a Sidekick/Tracker are the stock wheels.

A visit to a local used car lot might be helpful in your quest for knowledge although finding a Samurai may be a difficult task.

Hope this helps!

Re: suzuki to geo

I thought the tracker had a real truck frame? At least my buddy's 94 does. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Re: suzuki to geo

Here is what I mean:



Both are frame/body (as opposed to unibody) construction.

The Samurai has a frame made from two box beams bent and cross-braced in a ladder format.

The Sidekick/tracker frame is made from six pieces of boxbeam welded together to form a frame that lowers the passenger compartment (and creates a safety crush zone, I suppose).
