I have a 2002 Single Cab Holden Rodeo and I haven't really done anything to it yet. I have got new rims and tyres, 30x9.5 R15 BF Goodrich A/t's. Thats about it. Iw ant to get a lift kit for it and was wondering what kind of suspension I should go for. i don't know a lot about suspension though so I would like some help in regards to my vehicle. I go on the beach a bit and it bellys out and gets stuck when the sand gets to soft and sticky, and when I'm on a track with ruts my underbelly takes a bit of a battering. I was thinking of a 3" lift kit. I have also seen these drop shackles for leaf springs and was wondering whether they were worth getting also. Any help would be appreciated thanks

Do a search. Will find numerous posts and then it's up to you how extreme a lift you want to go. 3" on a Rodeo is extreme.
One of the best ways to get the belly of a Rodeo off the ground is larger tyres. I had 31x10.5x15 but others have managed 265x70x16.

Do a search on Calmini as I believe they offer a full lift kit which should suit your vehicle. The products are from the USA and I know there is a guy who brings them into Australia. His name escapes me at present but I think he advertises in 4wd Monthly.l

Try these;

Google Calmini

On the american sites our Rodeo is their Pickup.
Look at Calmini suspensions, ball joint flips, cranking the torsion bars etc.

Ive got Old man Emu suspension, heavy duty torsion bars on the front, middle weight of three available leaf packs on the rear with greaseable shackles and nitro charger shocks all round, happy with this so far but I may need to go the heavy duty rears when I get my camper trailer and long range tank.

Around $1600 to $2400 for the lot depending which make of suspension and who does the job.
Hope this helps
