Royce The following is a list my brother and I compiled for a proposed lift to my 80 Series. He has already completed a 3" lift on his 60 Series. Fan / Radiator shroud Fan will be in a lower position to the radiator, shroud base may have to be splayed. Exhaust hangers-Some exhausts hang from the body, these may need extending. Steering Joints-Loosen both universal joints on the steering shaft. Gear shifters-Will be shorter and may clash with the hole in the floor. Fuel tanks-Check for effects of body movement. Brake lines-Check for effects of body movement. Clutch line-Check for effects of body movement. Throttle linkage / cable-Check for effects of body movement. Heater hoses-Check for effects of body movement. Wiring harness-Check for effects of body movement. Speedo cable-Check for effects of body movement. Hand brake cable-Check for effects of body movement. Spare wheel-Check for effects of body movement. Roo bar / headlights-Headlights will be higher and may cause glare. Water tanks-Inlet and outlets. Hardware required Nuts and Bolts-Longer high tensile bolts. Spacers-number required 12? Flashing-To keep fluid and mud out of engine bay and aesthetics. Happy Motoring

Thanks for that info Coops. Just what I needed. My 'bus' is an Arkana conversion I'm dooing up. I've found a 150litre long range tank to sit under the back and am considering the lift to make fitting easier and clearance better. Thanks again Cheers Royce
