Re: where to find part for safari

Bang on two diffs.
The tauranga diesel specialists had them in stock.
Their advice was to keep using them.
Many thanks

Re: where to find part for safari

Hi Calvin thanks for the reply. I don't have one at the moment, but was considering it after reading stories and viewing photos on the Aussie sites, showing blocked filters with what appeared to be fuel filter material. However my truck has done 190,000 kms without one, so perhaps I am looking for a...

roof rack

Hi guys
I want to fit a set of roof racks to my 91GQ shorty safari. I was wondering if the Rhino aero heavy duty gutter mount would work on the Safari.
Does anyone use any other type of racks?

Re: spring spacers, fixing in place?

Hi
Did you use an aftermarket large damper like this

Hi Guys I've got the spring spacers in place and they have got the desired result 30mm lift. It took the garage around 4 hours to do the lot, apparently they did have to use a spring compressor, as I have new springs fitted all round. I did have one interesting thing happen on my first long trip. Co...

Re: spring spacers, fixing in place?

Hi Coxsy
Seeing how you have them fitted to yours, I have a query. Is it difficult to tell which way up they should fit in? the front ones have a sort of extended ridge/lip in the top and bottom, which i assume is some kind of locating thing.
Any ideas.

Hi Guys
I paid via Western Union direct to Ivan, had no problems. I had the confidence to do this based on other guys experience, mainly from Aussie.
However as Hard Yakka states using Alibaba sounds a better idea.

Re: body lift 91 safari SWB

Thanks guys, I'll get the spacers as mentioned and see how we go. Then larger rims and tyres in due course. Are there any issues with spacers regarding suspension travel, or driveability that I should be aware of? The rancho shocks are rated for a 25mm spacer, so I am hoping that the 30mm spacer tha...

Re: body lift 91 safari SWB

Guys
I might be confused here, I didnt realise that body lift and spring lift were two different things.
I am thinking that the spring spacers mentioned in a previous post sound like the answer, followed up by larger tyres when the current ones are finished.
What does a body lift involve?

Yes I agree with the above. I,m hoping that with larger rims/tyres,(any suggestions on suitability?) and a small body lift my problems should be gone. I dont want to do any more than 25mm lift as I have read too many posts of problems with higher lifts. So do I need anything other than springs for a...

Re: Diff lock compressor

Thanks for the good advice. The autosparky was quoting around $300 for a voltage reducer with enough start up current to run the 12v compressor.
So I think I will buy the ARB 24v unit, which comes with the wiring loom. Then Ill sell the 12v compressor and gear on trademe.

Re: noisey safari. .

Thanks guys, I didnt need to hear that, after spending more on Nolothane.
I must admit I was in a hurry to get away, so took the quick option.
There are 8 mounts I think. So for genuine ones its slightly cheaper than the Nolothane. the issue was the waiting time for them to come from Japan.

Re: noisey safari. .

Yep its almost certainly those pesky body mounts. I have the same truck and it was doing the same underfloor clunking noise. I trolled through all the forums I could then took the plunge and did the mounts. You can only get aftermarket nolothane ones as far as I am aware. Cost for the lot $743. Cheers
