Default Sorry for the cross post...

I've posted my post in the Swift section, but thought I'd probably get a lot more 4x4 knowledge in here - sorry if it's bad etiquette as I'm new to this forum and not learnt all the rules yet.

https://www.suzuki-forums.com/suzuki-...ml#post1486162

Question is about modifications available for the (surprisingly amazing in heavy snow this year in the Pennines in UK) 4x4 Suzuki Swift to make it more capable.

It's performance has put me in the market for the new Suzuki Jimny when it comes out as I'm still mourning the sad loss of my Series III Land Rover and wanting a replacement longterm!

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to leave your post hear for now, see what sort replies it generates, but what I need you to recognize is that there is a considerable difference in the platforms, and the knowledge/experience with a leaf sprung, live axled 4WD is most likely not going to translate well to an AWD vehicle with independent suspension...

Even the newer Jimny (which is live axled, coil sprung) has significant differences (when it comes to lifting) to the older leaf sprung models.

Thank you I recognise that - I was hoping for in-depth knowledge of different Suzuki 4x4/AWD platforms and thought that the Jimny subforum would be more likely to have that then the Swift subforum. Many thanks for leaving my thread running.
