Hi all

Just wondering what is involved in lifting a old Pajero.
What costs are there. What is a basic easy way of doing it.
I would hoping to be doing in myself, with the help of some mates.
If this achieveable or am I dreaming.

Cheers Patrick

Contact your local Pajero/four wheel drive club.

Apparently not difficult to do in the rear, but limited in the front due to torsion bar IFS (~2" or so)

Gary is right. My Triton is lifted in the rear leaf springs & front bars are wound up a little. Any more gets real major except for bigger wheels & there is limited room for any over 31". short of a body lift of course.

Hi Patrick,

It doesn't have to be expensive. I have a 95 Pajero and replaced the rear springs with 2" lift and wound up the front torsion bars 2" (about the limit). I run 31" tyres, any more would be getting tight, although 32" may JUST fit from memory.

Cheers,
Greg

Raising front will decrease life of CV joints and boots due to steeper driveshaft angles. Not a problem if your model has freewheeling hubs.
All pajeros (even superselect) can be fitted with FWH's from ealier models and tritons. Cheap (<$100) from wreckers.
