Re: Best Drawer System

I think a drawer system is a very personal thing, and me being the opinionated bugger I am, did not like any of the commercially available systems. My major reasons are that these systems in my opinion waste a heck of a lot of usable space in the name of being neat, and since I am trying to fit four...

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

I do not think this is normal or correct. On the other hand, it only takes a very small problem to generate these results in a Patrol, and many cars seem to have it. Some cars seem to be more problematic than others. I had a problem for a while, but it was due to very badly worn ball joints on the d...

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

Clem, I only have the number for the Y60, and I can't guarantee that it is correct for your car. It is checked with a spring balance.

It's on my computer at work, but I will post it tomorrow?

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

Clem, 0.6 - 1.75kg, measured at the hole of tie rod's ball joint.

Re: Ladder for Roof Rack.

Dawid, please send me your e-mail (again?). Cedric, I used mild steel and galvanized it. Not only cheaper, but easier to work with. Stainless would probably be the "ideal" material for this one though, but it's more difficult to find the square tubing that the legs are made from, and more difficult ...

Re: Trailer Coupling

I could be wrong about this, but I suspect that by the time you are exceeding the angular travel of the standard hitch with a typical overlanding trailer (which tend to have fairly high centres of gravity) you might well be in trouble anyway? Oom Mac (Kagiso) sort of half-rolled his trailer on Van Z...

Re: DEATH WOBBLE ????

Death Wobble is a difficult thing to diagnose and fix, because for it to happen at least two things have to be wrong, but the list of things that can be wrong is quite long. The primary cause of death wobble is that there is some play in one of the steering/suspension joints. I would say the primary...
