Re: POLL - WD21 owners: Steering mod that worked best for yo

It won't let me do the poll.... But, Mine is 3+ inches suspension lift, and 2wd mod with idler brace and reinforced idler. The 2wd mod is ok, it has longer tie rods than stock, so can handle a bit more travel, but there seems to be a small alignment issue, um, toe out on turns seems to be off. I hav...

Re: Show us some terrenos that have lift kits

I priced up doing the same as mine (without the upper arms) for a customer and it came to around $8000. wheels/tyres/body and suspension lift/shocks etc. Roughly 4" lift. You can run 4" on the Terrano without too many problems. We've also done a couple of L400's, they are around $5-5500 wi...

Re: raw shock issues only 1000km old

Basically 2 things could have gone wrong, either the nut on the end of the shaft has come off, which is an assembly problem (not all of them are staked) or it's broken from over-extension (very rare a shock bottoms the piston before it runs out of shaft travel). If you pull it out and pull the shaft...

Re: Ball Joint Spacers

The confusion is pretty black and white mate.

Re: Ball Joint Spacers

No. A 1" spacer cannot give a 2" lift without touching the torsions. :? How the f**k can it unless you have your torsions loaded against the bumpstops before you start???? All you are doing is spacing the hub assy down 1", so 1" lift. Simple. :roll: But try it, and post your resu...

Re: Ball Joint Spacers

Not real familiar with the surf, but some things apply to anything so.... With the torsions on the top arm like the surf has, a 1.5" spacer will lift it 1.5" It will however increase the droop by 1.5"X whatever the ratio is from the inner bushes to the bumpstop to the outer bj. Which ...

Re: pto winch housing welding..... can it de done?

I see what you are getting at but dissagree. Those bolt mounts on the front are designed to be part of the winch mount. Thus they will counter some of the torque loading generated by the winch load via the drum and worm box. As such these bolts will see a tensile load in countering the torque. (See...

Re: pto winch housing welding..... can it de done?

You are going down the right track by taking this repair to a good engineer. The winch casting will see quite high loads when in use, and a failure under load could have serious consequences. Maybe, but the loading is being pulled into the break rather than trying to pull it apart. A half decent we...
