Default 1994 suzuki sierra suspension problem help!!

Hey,

I have a 1994 Suzuki Sierra (Leaf Sprung).

I have been working my Sierra for a while now and cant seem to get the suspension right, so much money has been spent and it still rides extremely rough.

If there is any one who is having the same problem and can help me out that will be heaps good.

Thanks.

Without looking into a major suspension change, there is only one real way to soften the ride in a Zook... Air pressure.
The Samurai is supposed to run on 20psi in the stock tires (front and rear).
If you are new to zooks, you probably have 35psi in them and they are hard as rocks. The suggested pressures are on a data plate on the side of the dashboard.

Larger or offroad tires will be different depending on style and manufacturer.
Welcome!

For something simple, I would go with an Old Man Emu Samurai Lift kit from Trail Tough. It is pretty complete and an easy installation.
OME Spring lift
Otherwise, there are lots of options depending on your tools, skills and credit rating. If you want to look at a MUCH smoother ride, look into the YJ spring conversion kits on the same site. That's what is on my white zook.

One easy thing to check are the sping eye bolts....if you over tighten the bolts it will not allow the leafs to flex properly and will make it rough.
