I have noticed an increase in the roughness of the ride in my patrol after our trip round oz last year, any suggestions on how best to improve same with the idea of best value for money? {I am not much of a mechanic}

thanks peter:)

PS I have been away from this site for awhile good to see it is going so well!!!!

Peter,
Firstly, if you licence plate is the same as your sign on, what did you do to get the rear lights working on the GU, secondly, shocks probably the main cause, but may also be some suspension rubbers, if coils not sagging may still be O.K. I'm sure others will have more info

rolande, if you meen the brake & tail lights just go to an auto elec & they can put hella holders in & wier them up as wiring is already there thats what I did or you can get the 3 series tail lights & fit them for a price.

Petero.
Did you increase your tyre pressure on the trip? if so you may not have reduced them agian for running empty. Eric.

There is a trillion threads on suspensino for Patrols on this board, try the search function

Do you mean 3.0 GQ or 3.0 GU?
