Suspension choice

Having looked at the options open to me on the suspension front,I can't decide where to start.Most of the tracks over here (UK) are thick mud/deep ruts.What ever i choose will have to clear 31x10.50 tyres.Any ideas or thoughts would b appriciated.
current spec = standard SJ413 apart from 215x15 MT's

Re: Suspension choice

hi greenzuk.the cheapest way to get height is a 3"body lift and some longer shackles.that should work if you do not have to worry about stuffing the tires into also could rearch srings,or do a spoa set up.i started with 3"spring arch and had no problems at all.but i do not do real hard core running either.hope this helps.ranger rick P.S. if you run into any SAS folks they owe me a beer,collect for me.thanks

Re: Suspension choice

I would like to go SPOA but getting the bits over here (uk) is a little tricky.The shipping costs from the US are to high for a complete kit.A standard 2" lift kit over here is about £400 ($600) inc springs,shocks and hardware.

Re: Suspension choice

As to SPOA in UK cost, you should check out the SPOA writeup that was done on A fellow Uk'er
did the first write up on it, It has been moved around some on the site. You can allways get cheap spring pads and
weld supports to the old ones on the bottom of the axle which tie them together ala RRO mounts.
Make your Z-link or buy a pitman arm, and go with shocks for a differant truck that are longer. It really depends on
your mechanical skills and if you have a welder or access to one.
