Just wondering if anyone has converted a 75 series pre '99 leaf sprung front end to coils.

Or if anyone is familiar with the differences in the front suspension on the two vehicles.

Any major differences, as in can I keep my existing diff housing and internals then fabricate some mounts for the swing arms and spring perches? Then fab some rear mounts for the swing arms to chassis etc.

Just an idea...

Wish I could laugh bout it. We took a hit on the front corner from another car. It bent the top mount for the shackles/bushes. Have tried to get it straightened properly by a few work shops but the car pulls hard.

Had a GU before the troopy and much prefer coils over leaf packs.

Just wondering what the differences are, particularly with steering/suspension geometry.

Engineering wise your better off going to a wrecker and grabbing the brackets off a coil front end model ute
or possibly an 80 series and weld them on your chassis.
its less issue, engineering costs and hassle.and engineers prefer that way of action
Or a 80series chassis
or a 105...
Depending on wheelbase and if its actually doable

The chassis on the leaf sprung and the later coil sprung 75 series are exactly the same, so it would pay to get the bits off one of the coil sprung utes prior to the V8.
