This could be a real simple fix or tricky, every patrol is different!!
Try the little cheap stuff first one at a time and you will get rid of it, the Patrol can be fixed, my current one had the worst out of the 4 I have owned in my time it is now a joy to drive.
It took a month of test and measure but man I enjoy the smooth ride now, mud wheel balance, then bushes, one at a time,
Isn't that what those other handles on the doors are for... Window Shuttin' ...

I have searched the net and only find the Jeeps that can hold 37's.
Any help ... please.
I am about finishing my TD42 (GQ or GU, they are the same) rebuild.
Before I fit it in the car, I am hand cranking it to make sure that nothing is seized as I had one of the rod resized and brandnew rod bearings).
I found it very hard to crank even without head on, the torque is...
Just ordered a front lokka from 4wdsystems. Having done my research, I reckon it's a winner for the price and simplicity.
While I'd like to learn, I'm not really up to the task of installation myself and don't have the time.
I figure it's a good time to have the front end refreshed anyway...
