Hello mate have you tried ebay? i have seen complete strut and spring assemblies. thats was on ebay.co.uk so i dont know if they could be posted to you and how much it would cost but might be worth having a look. I am pretty sure i can get them as i am in the motor trade but not much good to you as i am in the UK.

thanks man, but are they just the stock ones? or would there be a heavy duty version?,,, just asking

also check out my reply on tamon.org (aussie mighty boy site) for the links to that finish carry turbo ute on youtube.. awesome..

i fitting bigger wheels now so i want strong springs/shockers

mate has 16's on his hijet and they look unreal, but i might have to stick to 15's due to no tyre here wold suit the profile is nice but the width is the problem at the front

As far as i know the stock springs are heavy duty as it is a commercial van ( all be it a little one). You dont need heavier springs/shockers to put bigger wheels on. I have put 14inch alloys on with 185/55/14 tyres. It was a major headache finding rims with the correct specs to fit, Plus i wanted to be able to use the side doors. If i had gone for 15's the doors wouldnt have worked. I am busy doing the body mods ie wheel arch extentions. Had a look at tamon site looks good couldnt find link for turbo'd carry is it this one? YouTube - Suzuki Carry Pick-Up '82 Turbo

might sign up to the tamon site maybe post the link to my supercharged carry van on youtube.

Sent you a PM with my email.

You could try using cut Honda Civic rear springs (EF, EG or EK). They're a stiffer than the stock ones. Used it on my truck and they're holding up well.

yeah dont need the rear leaf springs i already lowered the back with some ubolts and lowering blocks, and its already firm at the back

its just the front coils ill need, but i think i might just wait the 4-6 for the shop to make a custom set up for me that will be extra firm


also with those rubber bushings that face the front of the bumper the things that connect to the L&R suspension (hope you know what im talkin about) is there anywhere to get them ??? the black rubber things? or is that going to be another custom nolathane job??

Hongster,
I want to add bigger wheels/tire combination to increase my top end in my every. I see you are going to bigger wheels and lowering as well (I think I may need to lift). What tire/wheel size are you using and what issues do yuo have with lowering particularily on your CV and wheel camber?
