2-inch lift options for GQ/Y60 Patrol

Hi folks,

I'm looking into what my spring options are for doing a 2-inch lift on my GQ. I'll probably put Koni shocks on like I did with my GU, but I don't think they make springs too. This will be a holiday and overland vehicle only.

Re: GQ options

@Clem: As far as I know this is a fairly common problem with the 4.2 Petrols. @ Peter Connan: If you have the cash and time, I'd put a 4.2D in. If you have extra cash I'd try source a TD42T and put that in. There isn't much difference (in my experience) between driving a TD42 and a TB42 in the real ...

Re: Service 350 000Km '99 4.2d

When last were the oils checked for the diffs, gearbox and transfer case? Those are worth checking out. When last did you flush the engine with engine flush? Stuff tends to build up in the sump over the years, so it might be worth the time to give the engine flush a go and clean out the old girl's g...

That's been on Gumtree for ages now. He had it on for R160k initially and unsurprisingly has dropped the price in fits and starts. These are tough time to sell a thirsty 4.2 Petrol engine.

Re: Patrol GQ pryse

I actually have my boet to thank. He showed me the ad (I told him to go buy it NOW or I would!) and he actually flew up to JHB to buy it as a mommy wagon for his wife. When he got home his wife decided she didn't like it, so I bought it from him to give to my folks (the deal is I'll sell it to him i...

Re: 1999 4.2d

Hi Lerz, it was lekker bumping into you at Baviaanskloof Guest cottages. Make sure you ask Ross about your gearbox noises he has had the same issue for a while now and suspects its actually the transfer case chain. As far as the Hubs go, he replaced them with a manual set of GQ hubs for minimal cost...

1996, 4.2D, 168,000km's, stock Standard (the only extras are the bulletproof windows as this was a diplomatic vehicle in several rough African countries), one owner ---- R60k. It looks brand new inside and drives like a dream. When I got it , there were a few minor niggles that needed sorting out (a...
