Suzuki Samurai Lift Project

Here is a lift project with a Samurai . Its very simple and doesn't need a lot of modification. Is quiet a change of look with wheel 31" Insa Turbo tires. 1 1/2 wheels spacers and steering damper, that's all you need to lift your Zuk Sam.


Starting the project !!! SUPER STOCK









you should only put the dock above the tunnels !






NICE CHANGE !!!






Any help you could contact me : azzalin@gmail.com

For the love of...

where are you finding this Zuks that are so clean! God damn! Mine sat outside for a year an a half in snow and rain with no roof or doors. I had 2' of leaves and acorns when I towed it home. I had pine needles shooting at me from the vents!

That is one mean looking TT!

I got a few questions that i'm hoping somebody can help me out with. I got a '86 Sami with a SPOA lift on it now. I just ordered from Rocky Road the JPEater kit for it, then bought 2" lifted OME YJ Jeep springs to complete the kit. Has anybody used a set up like this and if so how much lift and flex are you getting out of it? I'm thinking I may end up going with Toyota axles or maybe even Dana 44's.

powerstroke_01_25,

Making that configuration on you Sami is going to make it very flexible,but that depends a lot in the shocks that you used and the how long are they ! If you still have the stocks ones all that things that you change are not going to be very useful.

The longest you could get it is best, the shocks are the one that are going to make the difference on your suspension.

Again, nice TT. What are your plans for springs? Do you plan to "wheel" your rig, DD, or both?
