  • Sub Frame Lift?

    I know a body lift is impossible beacause the body is the chassis. But i have had a few looks under the car and am wondering if anyone has considered lifting the sub frames off the body? as all the side steps and bullbars and tow hitches are bolted to the body it actually looks easier then the one i did to my NH pajero.

    The gearbox crossmember would also have to be dropped

    Any engineers on here or people that have any ideas

    Cheers

    Daniel. p.s. just a thought

    Hi Daniel,
    There was a guy in (I think) Spain that has done the lift you have been thinking about. I think his was on a NM, as it was a few years ago.
    There was photos linked with the old forum but as yet I haven't been able to find much on it since.
    I know its probably not much help but might keep you thinking;-)

      I wouldn't get in my garage at that height

      Intercooler moved on that one too?
      Had a quick look at the foro4x4 site but didn't find the specific thread.

              Wich shocks are you buy for the bodylift?

              A mate of mine here in Spain has done the Bodylift in the NM Did and lowered the top support of the rear shocks.

                There are kits as mentioned from OS, but first I'd talk to an engineer as I seriously doubt you'd get it OK'd here. Even if you could, the cost of getting it certified for road worthy would be astronomical..

                  There is a japanese company called AGC (Auto Garage Champ), that makes these lift kits.

                  Here is their website:

                    the japan kit is nothing for germany be cause you get no registration for the road........ I take coil over Shocks custom build for my car in the usa.......

                    They are longer and bigger.....

                    Spacers between shocks and springs are horrible on the road.....
                    It drives like a rocking chair.....

                      You are right, the registration may be a problem.

                      But, custom built coil over shocks are not a subrame lift, as the differentials will not move any lower? Only way to do the body lift, is to add something between the subframes of the suspension and, the body?

                        Yip, that is only suspension lift like my NM here with spacers and longer coils giving about 10cm lift. The cv run at acute angles and I have popped 2 cv boots since fitment so it might be better to go the subframe lift as per the jap website if you want to lift it that much.

                              Hey John pardon my ignorance but why can Patrols and LC be body lifted and not the Pajero and when they (Patrol and LC) do a body lift do they then need to get a road worthy cert?? Again I'm not 100% sure when it comes to this kind of vehicle mod but I would have thought it would be something on most peoples list things to do. Any info on this subject would be awesome and time saving.

                              Thanks
                              Its my truck and I have my wifes permission to say so.
