G'day guys from Dubai.

I recently bought a 2016 Y61 TB48 SWB and looking to do a 2" lift.

When I lived in Oz I previously used Dobinsons and looking to do the same here however I have been getting conflicting information from two different suppliers.

First supplier is recommending C45-132 on the front and C45-323 on the rear. These are only standard height springs however they are saying they will provide a 2" lift based on the local spec Y61.

Second supplier is recommending C45-189 and C45-134 and whilst they will give a 45mm lift looking on the Dobinsons website they are for a LWB.

On the Dobinsons website they recommend C45-004 for the front and C45-121 on the rear for the Y61 SWB so i'm completly confused.

Would appreciate everyones comments and feedback on what the optimal setup is.

Cheers

I have 3" dobinson springs in mine with 4" tough dog 45mm adjustable shocks with heavier swaybars front and rear. Love it. Works bloody great.
My 2 cents worth.

BTW, love the shorty.

Thanks geeyoutoo.

The concerns I have is that it will be a mixed use daily driver and weekend desert car. The daily driving will be on the highway sitting on 120-140km/h so don't want too high a lift that will make the ride uncomfortable.

Loving the shorty thanks mate. As its a manual its a lot of fun to drive

I wasn't suggesting you get a 3", just saying mine is that with dobinson springs and all good.

One of the reasons why Y61 was never offered in Oz in SWB was because of all the warranty issues they had with propshaft vibrations on SWB Y60s.

If you’re planning on doing lots of high speed highway driving, I’d rather err on the side of caution and go for something that won’t lift the vehicle excessively. The higher the lift, the more acute the propshaft angles and I wouldn’t want to be dealing with that at high speed.

Completely agree Andriek which is why I was hesitant about the second set of spring recommendations as it would lift it too much.

I'm also looking at gear box spacers, stearing damper and castor correction too
