    Fortuner suspension mods

    Hi Ren 13 , I just want you to know something I have done to my Xterra : Installed a levelling kit costing about AED 500 then ended up having to spend a little more on adjustable camber bolts . As Barry had suggested please have the front and rear aligned ( if the rear are alignable ) if you increase the height you will move the CG( Centre of Gravity ) up hence there is a need to have wheel spacers . One of the desert fox suggested 1 inch out for every 2 inch up . Go out for a couple of drives offroad see if it meets your requirement the n stick with if you feel that you need better suspension then please buy new springs and shocks that will give you lift and better suspension ( Initially going for total suspension change might throw you off as the ride will be stiffer and will be very noticeable on-road ). Please make sure you have adequate under chassis protection like bash plates , if your Fortuner has additional body kit please remove them as they will be removed by Desert ! Just my 02 Fils ! Some of the most important tools and kit to be carried during your off-road trips have been mentioned by our Master Desertfox Rahimdad in the following post : Drive /Ride Safe! Slick72
  4. Hi All, Thats a nice topic to pick our Forum Mechanical Guru's Rahim Bhai .... Barry when you say that front strut brace ( the metal piece connecting both the sturt head ??) you mean these right ? can this be done on a front IFS and rear spring plate SUV as I see it could be cost effective and is there a way to have braces for rear with leaf springs ?

  9. Hi All, Good afternoon ! The same thing continues again........ both Gaurav and Rahimdad took total care of things and the worst thing is the whole crowd is getting corrupted by Gaurav and Rahimdad .... They whole bunch was really friendly and kind .... even so they put up with my great jokes ..... Saleem with his amazing Rav4 was a sight to see as they say its 90% Driver 10% the vehicle amazing skills ..... I did get myself bogged down and was helped by Rahimdad during the initial phase of 4x2 drive and finally towards the steep slope of fossil rock by Gaurav..... And a mighty big Thanks to Asif for capturing my stupidity will always remember that . With regards to Barry , Diamond and Jason you are supposed to go over the dunes and not flatten them down ....... Drive /Ride safe ! Slick72
