  • What is your ride heights before suspension upgrade?

    My high mileage NS (175,000km) will be going in for Bilstein & Lovells next week. O I thought I'd measure the current heights. This is with very light load in the car and mostly stock. I have alloy nudge bar, some lights, roof bars & awning. Inside is a near empty Waeco.

    Measured from bottom of rim to the bottom of wheel arch:

    Front Right: 745 mm
    Front Left: 741 mm
    Rear Right: 755 mm
    Rear Left: 762 mm
    Pajero NS Exceed
    Done: HID & LED Driving Lights, Nudge Bar, Bushskinz Bash plates, Roof Rack, UHF, Awning, Bilstein & Lovells 50mm lift, 285/60/18 A/T Tyres, 160W Solar, 120Ah ARK Battery, Waeco CF-50

    Not too bad GrumpySmurf considering the mileage.
    This was my NT with roughly the same setup as yours, when it had only done about 3000ks. So nicely settled in....
    17" wheels:
    Front Right: 735 mm
    Front Left: 735 mm
    Rear Right: 750 mm
    Rear Left: 745 mm
    So, most of yours are still better than were back when it was virtually new.

    PS: Hopefully have my Bilstien/Lovell HD setup in another week or so, on order with Kieron now.

        If you are making comparisons measuring from the bottom of the rim, you need to say if you have 17" or 18" wheels.

          If it helps I took these measurements centre hub to underside of mudguard when my NW was in its first week.
          LR figure is a bit odd, not sure if its the garage or the car? Havn't got around to checking.

          Starting points

          LF 505
          RF 500
          LR 525
          RR 505

          Suspension had 100mm downward travel

              I'm surprised Matt you only gained 30 -39mm at the front?

                Yeah, but at the same time i added bullbar, spotties, dual battery etc.... so hard to judge what id have without that gear... if that makes sense?

                  Yes, I thought that may have been the case, your first measurements were before you added the bling, so to speak.
                  The measurements I have above were taken when my NT was a few months old and just the nudge-bar up front. When I fitted the ARB deluxe bullbar, the front suspension dropped about 10-15mm. The post bullbar dimensions, are the dimensions I will be using to compare my before and after heights, when I have the suspension lift later this week....hopefully? The gear is in transit now, supposed to get here from Kieron on Wednesday. Can't wait!!
