ARB make them for their own springs, I don't know if they fit springs from other manufacturers.
I don't know what the cost unfortunately.

Try ARB Southern in Dandenong, they have a good range at a fair price.

Don't do it. Autobarn have them but dion't do it.

Coil spring spaces will cost you at least $30-40 per wheel and are dangerous - the spaces can move under the force of impacts.. Furthermore they give crap ride compared to proper springs. Only useful if you want to both lift it and drag it - because the springadaptors can usually do both. Anyone wanna set teh diesel 1/4 drag record in Australia????????????????????

Pay $50-60 each spring and get em done right. Kings springs charge about that - and many of the factory "options" are about that price too - although it's worth checking out Pedders and other options.

Ome usually want about $100 per spring.

If you dont have the money to do it properly go begging around wreckers.

By measuring my springs I found "temporary" spings for $15 per set. The shockers were $30 per set. OME want $1300 - I got my 2" lift for $90. Anyone in Brissy want a cheap 2" lift for a Vitara??? All Slabs/Blowj0bs/Sister's phone numbers considered?

I had to I'd almost lost all my petrol tank on the previous trip - but didn't want to spend the money in case it was illegal when I moved interstate.

In the long run even they were a waste of money - but at least I didn't waste $1300+fitting. Get your springs right - it's even more important than the shockers being right. Shockers are heaps easier to swap unless you're strut front - usually 2 bolts per shock........


PS 40 mm lift should be legal in ALL states - at least that's what TJM and ARB tell me.

Obviously you're using an IFS 4wd. I was told 40mm max on the Viagra.

I went with 40 ish mm Kings Springs and 1" body lift (easy - almost no mods to fit 1"). I had 2" lift blocks but on the Vitara but took them back as there was gonna be serious issues fitting them and even then I couldn't put any bigger tyres on it than my 30x9.5x15's - the wheel arches are just not big enough front to back to fit big tyres without major rework......

Total cabin lift with the wheels included is 5".

I got my body lift blocks from Australian Four Wheel Drive Specialists in Kilsyth. I doubt they'll give you the same price but it cost me about a quarter of what most places advertise them for. Fitting 1" lift blocks is a cinch for anyone with a high lift jack - 2" or 3" and you start looking at changing brake lines, bending gear levers, cutting holes in floors etc.
