  • suspension upgrade help

    Hi, now its the tax return time of year I'm looking to raise the suspension on the Pajero. any thoughts on what to do first, which combination is best?

    do i go for a big lift with the suspension, or a combination of body lift kit and suspension raise.

    all comments will be greatly appreciated.

    could a moderator move this into the generation 2 part of the forum please

    fitted king springs & bilstein shocks to me DID NP pajero.I towed a camper trailer out to Tiboburra last July & the new suspension handled the roads with ease.
    There are cheaper suspension kits available but I went for Bilsteins after researching other off road forums.

    2011 NT. Now to transfer dual batteries, fridge slide, uhf & slider plates from previous NP.

      Tas smurf I have fitted 3" Lovells springs & Bilstein shocks, it is hard to say what is the "best" everyones expecations of handling & ride are differant.
      This lift has not compromised the comfort & the handling is way better than before.

      Depending on the terrian than your are 4x4ing {rock Hopping} you may need a body lift kit, so far I've been over some good tracks & I would consider a body lift a an over kill & waist of money, you can decide if you need a further lift later on.
      Hope this helps; Gary

        Which Lovell spring did you get for your front and rear?
        Front = CFR-90EHD or CFR-90HD?
        Rear = CRR-92C or CRR-92HDC

            GaryGLS,

            How much did your suspension upgrade cost if you don't mind me asking. Also, have you had any issues with low clearances in your everyday driving???

              Interesting combination. Front is normal Raised height but rear is HD raised height and you got 3" raise.

              I have a patrol model and will have the same rear springs but the front I am thinking of the CFR-90HD (raised HD ) instead of standard raised height.
