  1. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hey all! I'm slowly learning more and more about my gu but im struggling to find information about the suspension. She's an old girl 2002 model and it's well time to replace the bushes throughout the vehicle. Are there any diagrams of the suspension layout and what each part is called I can find...
  2. Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Hello all, I wanted to ask if anyone has installed a bullbar on stock suspensions or hydraulics and if there is any sag or other disadvantages to doing so.
  3. Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Hello everyone, I have a 2014 Y62 with the factory HBMC still intact as it is my daily driver, however I would love to install a lift without affecting the hydraulics. I have seen that people install King or Dobinsons, but I do not want to remove my hydraulics, and I have been told by my local...
  4. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    G'day legends, Hoping someone can give me some advice on what the best castor correction would be. I'll be running a 3" lift, so tossing it up between superior superflex, just drop boxes, or a 5 link (from superior, or maybe psr?). Definitely open to whatever you guys reckon though. Not...
  5. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Gday, the pride and joy isn't sitting as pretty as it should be at the moment and I'm not sure why. I took it to a mechanic for other reasons and while it was there I was told I had some collapsed shocks and sagged coils and it was time to replace that stuff, so I took it elsewhere to get the...

    Hey guys, my front has sagged massively and i’m wondering if i should replace it with 3 inch instead of 2, is this silly? if it’s not to bad does anything else need to be done like panhards ect?
  7. Suspension, Steering and Brakes
    Hey guys, I'm currently running 2 inch lift and looking to go to 3. Ive got the springs and shocks, Ive already got brake lines but I've read a lot about all the other things you need to do to correct it eg ( panhards, sway bar links ect.) but can I get away with not having them? Will it cause...

    Has anyone got a gu 4.2 Ute and installed a buds customs rear 4 link, just needing to know a more detailed description on what’s involved before I go spending the money on it, I’ve heard something about it interfering with the sub tank, is this correct? Photos would be appreciated as well, Cheers

    Hey guys just about to install 4 inch shocks on my Gu wagon, I have a 2 inch lift on 35s, I have drop cones and rear coil retainers, do I need extended shock towers to run 4 inch or should it fit without them, cheers

    hello everyone, i am from peru and i have a 2012 nissan patrol y62 and since last year the suspension started to fail and i took my truck to the nissan authorized center to refill the hydraulic system. After a month of waiting they told me that their supplier had that fluid as discontinued and...

    Do I need caster correction for a 3" lift in a gu patrol wagon
  13. General Patrol Discussion
    I know there has been discussion about this before but nothing recent, I’m going to buy a complete rear end off another coil patrol to convert my leafy, and I know it’s not as easy as it sounds. If anyone on here has done one recently or in the past what parts did you end up reusing/replacing...
  14. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    G'day everyone, as a result of some silly choices I have lost my licence for a year. On the bright side, I have 9 months left to do some stuff to the bus (1991 TD42). I'm on a budget as I've already bought a 12mm pump, rear bar, intercooler and also getting a bit of panel work done. I want to...
  15. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    So I've ordered all the parts to do my 3 inch lift in the coil cab ute. I'll be running Superior 12 inch travel remote res shocks front and rear, 80 series style bumpstops front and rear, PSR hybrid long arm radius arms and PSR 3 inch progressive rate coils. My only concern is getting enough up...

    New to the whole forby game, just brought a patrol looking to put some lift in it, I’m set on doing 3 inch lift but unsure on what shocks to get, I’m buying superior suspension and when reading about the shocks it say 3inch shocks with 11.5inch travel. Would it be better to say buy 7inch shocks...

    I am looking to get a 2" lift on my patrol. It is my everyday rig, but i take it offroad almost every single weekend. It has a front and rear steel bullbar, winch, and roof rack. what suspension kit do you recommend. It is between ironman and dobinsons due to budget and availability as i am not...
  18. Suspension, Steering and Brakes
    Hey guys I'm wanting to lift my 88 gq thinking 2" over 3" just cause it's cheaper and requires less work. Alot of the kits I see online are for lwb models. And wondering what the key difference it would have if I installed one on mine. Only thing I can think of would be that they might be a bit...
  19. General Patrol Discussion
    Hey everyone, looking to purchase my first patrol from interstate but i'm a little worried about the feasibility on registering heavily modified vehicles. I know next to nothing about this topic which is why i'm here to ask! More concerned about the big things such as tyres, suspension and...

    Hi guys, I´m looking forward to upgrade my suspension setup on my 1999 Y61 Patrol 4.5L. It is my daily driver, but I also take it offroad every month. Once I upgrade the suspension I will put a steel bullbar, winch and I am also considering a rear bar with tire carrier. Now I just have a steel...
