wanting to lift my t31


So I've read some things and from what I can gather I'm better off getting a 30mm lift with kings instead of going for a 50 mm lift from peddlers I was thinking about just putting 50mm peddlers coils in for now and then replacing the struts later can anyone help me as I'm starting to get confused or is there something else I could go with like maybe dobos springs .....I have a 2010 xtrail petrol 4wd as I love the 4wd its just to low in a lot of places I go ......someone please help me and thank you

Re: wanting to lift my t31


I have a May 2010 build xtrail and 50mm lifts were not available for the T31 at the time I had the lift done some years back due to different suspension design between the front and back. A 30mm lift was all that was available then.
The T30 was able to be lifted 50mm all round.

Things may have changed but other more knowledgeable forum members may be able to comment/clarify.

cheers

Re: wanting to lift my t31


I've just bought Dobinsons 30mm lift springs front and rear and Monroe struts and shocks. I'll be fitting them this weekend. I believe 30mm is all you can go due to CV Joint angles. Theres more info under "T31 suspension lift and airbags". If you need extra lift you may need to change tyres and rims. emoticon

Hey Barney,

What did you decide on in the end?

I do a lot of camping trips, but would like the extra height to protect the underbody (once I start getting serious I'll get some underbody protection).

cheers

Re: wanting to lift my t31


Guys,

It really depends on the terrain you will be travelling.

While extra clearance is good, the extra 30mm is not a whole lot more than stock.

Investing in a good bash plate for under body protection would be key.

Again, it really depends on the terrain you will be travelling.

Re: wanting to lift my t31


Underbody protection was my first major accessory after ripping my rear bumper on Stocton Beach at a Sand Driving course BUT I was sure glad that I had the 35mil suspension lift (Pedders) for when I went to Fraser Island as I still scraped bottom as I tackled the many deep rutted tracks on the Island. That extra lift sure helped methinks.

But as indicated above, the type of terrain you want to tackle will determine whether both accessories are [sign in to see URL] if finances are tight I would also go for bash plates in the first instance.

cheers all and happy exing.

Re: wanting to lift my t31


Hey all,

Just to give you an update on the possibility of raising the T31 Exy.

Raising the front of the car 50mm is not a problem. As with the T30, the T31 CV's are able to reach that far with ample room for play.

The issue is at the rear.
The T30 has McPherson struts at the rear as well as the front, that is why it can be done.

The T31 has separate/independent suspension. Meaning, spring and shock absorber are not together.

I am currently looking for a spring and shock combo that could potentially raise the exy approx 50mm.

This is not a simple task and many different aspects of the car need to be taken into account.

I will do what I can and report back if I have success.

Re: wanting to lift my t31


My thoughts are the strut spacer for the fronts and a spring spacer with extra length shocks for the rear, but I am not sure if anyone makes spring spacers to suit the Xtrail springs.

Re: wanting to lift my t31


Kev,

Rear spring spacer sounds very interesting.

Have looked into this and it is a big no without some heavy duty engineering.

The current research leads me to the second part you said. Longer parts.

I am a little busy at work ATM but as soon as i have time I will resume my search for the right spring and schock combo to lift the exy approx 50mm from stock.

Unfortunately any more lift requires too much red tape.

Will keep you all updated.
