softer ride in a tracker

Wondering what can be done to get a softer ride in a 95 tracker? we use it to drive logging roads, nothing fast, seldom in 4wd. I think I have read that the sway bars can be removed, will this help? thanks

quick and free would be to air your tires down a bit. to 20 psi or so. that way the tires absorb individual rocks etc. and improve traction, yet maintain stability. just remember to air up again.

A late answer but my 2 cents

I drive same as you and have decided to go with larger tires so I can air down further. Admittedly, this has lead me down a slippery slope of putting on a 3" lift kit from Altered Ego Motorsports (VERY NICE!) and installing a compressor so I can air up again on my own. Picked up a Boss PX07, also really impressive.

At first, I put the tires on without the lift. They are 30"X9.5 (P235/75s would work very well, too). I didn't notice a problem with rubbing since they are on Samurai rims and that gives about 1" extra offset and i'm not doing anything extreme. Might try a 1/2" spacer later.

The larger tire allows airing down to 15-20 and naturally absorbs more road bumps and bangs.

There are LOTS of used out there.

Where are u located?
