So my rear limit straps arrived, i definetly underestimated the size the clevis kits and hoping the local suspension joint can move them up enough to make up for the extra length. Yes there are two different lengths as the mounting points arent the same

So finally ordered some fox gear for the front. One of our vendours here in aus is able to get custom length 2.0 fox performance struts, he said he will also cUstom valve them for my car. They will be paired up with his platinum progressive weight coils.

New fox 2.0 coil overs are in, just waiting on the vendour to organise some longer legs gor them, then once i swap them out and lower the preload i should have between 4-5 inches of droop at 3 inches of lift.

Ride quality compared to the previous bilsteins is night and day, they are much nicer on and offroad, thanks to custom valving, linear piston and progressive springs

Awesome, I went with Walker-Evans racing suspension at all 4 wheels and also noticed a night and day difference over the factory Bilsteins. Enjoy.
Ye i was going to do a complete custom set up using universal fit fox factory 2.0s but the length i needed only came with half inch uniballs, and to go to a 5/8 uniball lower mount the shortest version available was 10 inch travel

New superior engineering sway bar links are in, they are disconnects as they also the front of a y60 and y61 patrol.

They come with fittings for permanant connect but the disconnect is a nicer fit.

The blue superpro links had the vertical ball joints fail and its apparently a common problem with that style so got something more durable

i Hope you like changing CV boot axles because you are going to be a pro at them with these disconnects
