Re: T30 Suspension Lift


at the moment i can go most places with the coil lift. the places i cant go usually require low range anyway. i think due to the risk of increased wear and having to go through a possible engineer certificate i will give it a miss.

im starting to think outside the xtrails capability. as much as i love the exy i think my next car with have some low range and be a bit higher as stock emoticon

thanks again for the advice everyone emoticon

The legislation here in Australia (NSW) states that a maximum lift of 75mm can be done but that includes any increase of tyre height.
So 50mm lift and a maximum of 25mm in tyre size.

Well in that case, personally I'd go with 50mm lift and 2 inches bigger tyres, if the idea is to improve off-road performance.

Re:


The only problem with the spacers (rather than the springs) is that it streaches the brake lines and also the wheel sensor wire. Not enough to break them and I have not changed them, but on full extension (when the wheel is just about off the ground) they are fairly tight (and I wonder whether this is why I had rocks rip out the wire twice - because there was not much give in it - see http://baustralianxtrail.runboard.com/t127494,offset=0 ).

Oh, and the other problem - it drops so low that the anti-sway bar links can straighten completely and then swivel back the wrong way. Happened to me going over a speed bump. (Glad it did not happen going over a sand dune in the Simpson Desert!)

Yeah, fortunately there were already warnings about the brake line and ABS sensor wire issues on this forum before I lifted my ride. I replaced the original brake lines with longer braided ones and soldered extensions to the rear sensor wires when I fitted the 3 inch lift.

About the sway bar link reversal, I had no idea that could happen but it might explain why Rich (basshead) had a joint in a sway bar link pop out when driving. I haven't had this issue even when bottomed out, but I don't have genuine sway bar links in there any more.

Re: T30 Suspension Lift


 Gday Guys I have gone against the rules on a double lift.

I have had the kings fitted a while ago now and I am happy with the ride but not happy with sag after extra weight added in rear , so i have also fitted the strutspacers but only to the rear and kept front to just springs. I will take some propper measurements tomorrow. At the moment the rear is only 25mm higher than front which looks good and when boat is on it should be close to level rather than my headlights spotting koalas.

Re: T30 Suspension Lift


At 1st I did think about it but after the info from this site i choose not to and also it
looks terrible having the front sitting higher than the back.

I measured it up
Rear is 500mm from centre of rim to top of whell arch
Front is 470mm
This is whith a full tank of fuel, also with fridge draws and tools in rear.

The photo was taken in the dark so not the best but I think it looks ok and when boat is on it will be close to level.

I just need to get wheel alighnment done now .

Cheers
