Re: Coil lengths

Find this strange. I have a second set of springs a forum member passed onto me for my SFA build. The springs are also 20mm different in size between left and right. Is this normal, and does it wear like that, or are they supplied like that. Other problem is, I don't know which should be left and wh...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

Well, I'm pushing hard to go coils all round with a three link plus panhard when I get done... one day. Articulation should be way better than the IFS was. It's just my crawler gear ability that may tempt me into places that difflocls will be needed. I want to climb biga$$ rocks :blonde: . I'll watc...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

Years ago i built a super-lightweight game viewer. Beetle floor, old Combi gearbox with portal axles, modified beetle front suspension, custom rear suspension, nissan 1400 engine and so forth. I modified the handbrake lever to have three levers. One for each rear wheel, and the middle one pulled up...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

En daar gebeur dit..... Dis die eerste keer wat iemand my OOM noem... Nou voel ek skielik oud :surprised: .... Ek wil nie te veel peuter met die standaard brieke nie. Jou versekering is seker die die manne wat jou gaan uit vang die dag wat jy a Taxi stamp. Ek wil graag disks gaan agter, wat dit moon...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

I think you are referring to the H233, and that was on the rear end of the Terry, and front end of the Patrol, and on the "newer" models only. On the old MQ/Safari, it was still C200 up front with the H260 or H233 on the rear. I have ended up with the C200 on the front and H260 on the rear with 4.88...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

I have not gone into it much because of budget. I'm still trying to work out if it's possible. Uncle Mac, I've destroyed the possibility of Dana diffs. I have a Safari front and rear end that is going in. Dana don't come close to the ratios as standard, and a re-gear makes it too expensive. One axle...

Re: Front Axle Lockers

I searched this weekend again, in the hope that I had maybe missed it last time, but seem to be stuffed with a locker option for the C200 front diff. I would have loved the Spartan lunchbox locker, but the only thing available is the ARB airlocker. I will never put R24k into this vehicle on one item...
