Any guys on your side that have upgraded or do any performance mods to these motors?, if you looked at the suspension is it the correct on as i am off to the states in 2 weeks and want to buy one to bring home
If you have heaps of money like Nkelly you could go full airbag. Have a read of this... ROFLMAO i spend $ 5000.00 on suspension and i have heaps of money.... I FARKEN WISH I HAD HEAPS OF MONEY SUNSHINE THEN YOU WOULD SEE A BEAST ..
I had some money..
Now back on topic
What is the DATE OF BUILD thats pretty important when ordering stuff from the states..
And what you put on your vehicle depends on your wallet,as *Cpt thinks he knows* said i put airbag suspension on mine,which is a far better ride than the Procomp leaf spring suspension i had..
I've installed the Pro comp MX6 shocks adjustable's,make sure you order the correct one's in regards too your lift and also take note of the size of the shock mounts,whether they 1/2" or 5/8" or both like mine 5/8 on top and 1/2 on the bottom..
Try and get a SOFT spring set,you can always get airbag assit kits which will be way better than a heavy duty spring set that you cant soffen when you are empty.
