Hi, Have had the suspension upgrade on the cruiser just recently, which is great but the headlights are way out for normal driving, but good for possum hunting.
Has anyone got advise on the adjustment points ?
Thanks in advance.
Cheers Glenn

Glenn.

The adjustments points are easy to find (directly at the back of the headlights) but very hard to get to.
The only way I could adjust my lights was with a ratchet right angle Phillips head driver.
Park the cruiser in front of the garage, turn on lights and adjust away.

Hi Glenn,

Sorry I can't answer your question but the post above may have done that.

What cruiser do you have IFS or Rigid? What suspension upgrade did you go for? What extra weight over normal do you have in the cruiser? How do you find the new ride?

Hope you don't mind the questions :-)

Gidday Dustin,
Don't mind the questions at all, thats whats good about this forum.
I have a 2006 LC TD.
Fitted Bilstein front shocks and Old Man Emu HD torsion bars. The rear springs were changed out with progressive rate King Springs.
I have the estate bull bar, OL Safari roof rack, and the Outback _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx in the rear as normal extra weight.
Loaded up with all the camping gear and the difference is very noticeable from the original specs.
The ride is a bit stiffer unloaded but she still rides like a sedan, body roll has improved a lot.
With the Safari power up kit (D-tronic chip, bigger inter-cooler and 3 inch exhaust), the damn thing just goes better than I ever expected.
One very happy camper now.
Hope this helps
Cheers Glenn

Did you raise the front end Glen, or leave it at standard height?

The front end has been raised by 45mm. The cruiser now sits level

Beware if you have only wound the torsion bars up, rather than using the diff drop cross member. Mine had been wound up 50mm, and at 110,000k's the guts pulled out of the driverside CV. It was obvious how much the CV's were working as the hardfacing was worn off on left side also and you could see how far the CV balls were rolling back and forward inside. $1400 to replace, genuine parts only available.
Remember most IFS 4X4's are part time 4WD, and so CV's are only wearing when in 4WD. These are working all the time.
