Hey all just finished fitting my 4" lift from suspension stuff with flexi coils.
Man i am so happy with except for the face toll forgot to deliver the steering damper so i am damperless atm so to speak.
everything bolted on great and took about 5 hrs all up including smoke "o" and beer "o"
here are some pics
let me know what u think
and also weather or not u recon the front sits to high as shane fromm suspension stuff said it might. but it looks pretty good to me and it measure ground to body front and back exactly the same.
i recon its sitting sweet. and im stoked :)

before

rides friggen awesome its firmer than it would be with procomp shockers and a little more body roll cornering but the steering is lighter and the ride is sooper smooth and no more noises or creeks :)
u recon 35"s ? so ur saying the 32's look to small...... i kinda like it hmmmmm decisions and $$$

hahaa,depends on what driving ya do.if ya get into pretty hard stuff,then 35's would be good.

if not,a new set of 33's maybe??? looking at your pics it looks like your tyres are getting a bit low anyhow ;)

are you worried about cops??? i find sometimes 35's make the lift look smaller and the wheel to arch ratio looks normal again lol

ummmm, diff gears, 4.3's would be nice.

dont think 35 fits on rear door,i havent faced that prob yet :)

also, alot of problems with 35 inch tyre stock,there isnt much around,but by the time you need new ones it will be all good i think.

i good budget 35 like maxxis bighorn would be ok if ya budget is tight, some BFG KM2's like i have,but $$$$$$ but very good apparently.

maybe a set of 33 inch bighorns man,that would be ok i think

being a mighty mav, he would have 3.9s - poor fella!

if mike wants to run 35's, he will deff need new ratios!

yeah, you will need front and rear!

is all about the ratios of the drive shaft, to the roatation of the wheels!
i dont know the exat way to explain it mathmaticaly, but...

if you leave the 3.9's with 35's, your drive shaft will need to rotate a % more for 1 revolution of the tyre. i.e, first gear, will feel like second!

changing the gearing, sort of corrects it.

if you was to chop and change between 33's and 35's, i would run 4.3's.
if you want to run 35's all the time, run 4.6's.


im not quite sure on this, but i heard that you can get them from Brunswick Diesels in WA for like $500.

i was told that they all had 3.9's.
one of the so called 'differences' from ford to nissan!

maybe the info i heard, and read was wrong!
my apologies!


i wish if the diff centers from the leaf sprung utes fitted in the coiled wagons :(
