Default Coily Samurai Lift

Hey people,
New member here from Trinidad & Tobago, been a browser of the forums for a while now though.

I have a 97 RHD Suzuki Samurai SJ80 (Coil sprung). My problem is I would like to lift it but the only lift kit I'm seeing available is on ebay and all the way in Australia. I'm willing to purchase that kit as a last resort but it would be alot easier on my pocket if I can find something closer to my side of earth, lol.

Does anyone out there know of some shocks and springs that I can purchase that will work for me? For example, some part numbers and/or brands of shocks/springs that I can put together to work on the Sammy. Even if it's from the US it would be much easier for me to get from there.

My plans are to do a suspension lift (about 2-3 inches), a 2 inch body lift, and maybe some coil spacers if needed.

Thanks in advance!!

Thanks, but I tried both of those places already. Because the SJ80 wasn't sold in America it's hard to find any suspension parts for them being that they are coiled and not leaf suspension. Thats why I have to find substitute parts or details on the Australian kit so I can maybe buy the parts individually.

Sorry I couldn't help foomanchoo! Your best bet would be to talk to those Aussies, and see what they can do for you. Good luck bro!

There are lots of guys over here that do a 4 link coil spring conversion. The only comercially available coil conversions that I know of is the Trail Tough one and the RRO one. The RRO have a Y link instead of a true 4 link They also have horrible customer support so I don't know if you could even get them to help you with questions about springs and shocks. Trail Tough on the other hand has a much better customer support, and they would probably be very helpfull in customizing a kit for your coily.

there was a guy from Greece who did a lift on his Jimny.. I'll see if I can find the link. It was over on pirate 4x4



Jimny project. - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board

in this project he took his rig that is pictured and put air shocks all around and cut up the body a lot. The air shock build is pretty extreme, but you could write to him and find what he did to get his rig to the point it is at in the above picture. That's just a coil lift with extended shocks and some jeep fenders.

here's what it's looking like after a lot of welding and cutting for the FOX air shocks.
