Old tyres & suspension

Post by AndrewA »

I have old tyres, shocks and coils springs to give away. They are about to head of to the rubbish dump but somebody may be interested in them. They were taken off my Patrol 4.8 GRX in 2011 and the car was bought in 2010 (1 year old at the time).

It is 5 tyres, 275/65R17 the spare was never used, coils springs and shocks front and back.

If you are interest message me and come and fetch before they head off to the dump.

Whats the length of those springs. I have a set of GQ coils I'm wanting to use on my Sani SFA. But I'm always looking for other options. Must say the GQ rears look way more beefy than than those in the picture.But I have seen how the GU's can flex, so interested to see what they length is compared to the GQ springs.

Bud, It might be better if you sort out with Andrew and let me know and then i'll happily arrange with Andrew to go past and collect it. I don't want to cause havoc here, but David and Jules expressed interest before you did, so I would prefer to hang back until who is taking what and when etc is sorted out. :thumbup: :thumbup:

No problem from my side. I already have a set of GQ coils front and back, a set of Pajero coils front and back, and a set of New Fortuna coil overs front and back to play with. Another set of coils will probably just cause enough confusion in my garage to make the Sani spend another year off the road, and standing in my driveway. I also see the GU coils have a very noticeable length difference from left to right, where my GQ coils are virtually matched. I am also doing a load balancing exercise to try and get a good weight distribution.

So don't worry about me here.
