Default Has anyone installed an IFS?

Has anyone installed an independent front suspension in their Sammy? Can it be done?

anything can be done... it's a bit of a step backwards though. Most people with IFS rigs envy us samurai owners with our live axles.

You would basically be removing the entire front end suspension and drivetrain from a sidekick/tracker and then putting it on your samurai.

I would think it depends on what the reason for replacing the front suspension is... Correct me if I am wrong but it seems to me the IFS would be better for on road use. I think the above response is accurate if you are talking about using the suzuki offroad... Important to think about the way you are going to use the vehicle... Mine is a POS that I wouldn't put too much money into... but I love it just the same...

Perhaps you'd be better off buying a 'kick.
