hiya guy's,
i'm new to this site so just a quick question for now.
i've been told that i can't do a suspension lift of more that 50mm on the 3.0tdi patrol as it will become unstable...and a variety of other reason's,
yet have seen them with up to 150mm. was told this by arb here in perth.
can i go to 75-100mm and if so who in perth do i see.
will it effect steering geometry?
what about drive shaft angles ...etc?
any info appreciated. ta, rick

I drove a GU Patrol with an 8" lift and 39" tires across the Simpson Desert last year. With live axles you are only limited by your imagination and your wallet. Stability is up to you and how and where you drive it

I would suggest you take a look at www.bigballsoffroad.com this is an Australian website that supplies a huge range off Patrol suspension mods and accessories. With all their 50mm plus kits include extended brake lines, castor bushes, diff breathers etc. Excellent kits as everything is supplied and taken care off for you. If you contact them via phone or email they will put you in contact with someone who can supply and fit the kit for you. Cheers Tony

The sky is the limit, but you will need engineers certificate for over 3inch lift.

Why do you need more.?? you competing?

If you dont put larger tires on it just looks plain stupid.. I have a 6in lift on my GQ and until my 35's come in, my 33's look like smarties.

hiya truckster. (truckie?). i would like about 75mm to get some decent ramp angles. and to fit a better set of tyres when the originals wear out.mind you if i could go up a rim size when i get the tyres it would be even better!!! not into competing, just sick of that grinding sound as i realise that the belly is dragging thru the wheel ruts again...:). we use the patrol mainly for weekend trips at the moment but are starting to set it up for the longer away trips, so i want to do it right the first time. (so expect alot of questions).amy other tips on anything are most welcome. rick
