I know this has been spoken about not too long ago, but after spending time last night going over hundreds of past posts,I can't find it.
I need to lift the Navara D22 2006 Mod about 2 inches but I don't want to end up with a rock hard ride. The Ute is only used for play and so carries about 150 to 200 Kg in the back. (Recovery gear etc.). Also have the CT so about 90 Kg on the tow ball. I will mount the winch onto the factory Bull Bar at some stage, so will most likely also need to upgrade the front torsion bars.
Who has upgraded their D22 & what brand have you used?

Regards
Vince

Gedday Vince,

When you search use the Key words like D22, Suspension, Navarra etc

Enter it in this format D22 and Suspension and Navarra

That helps to reduce the number of posts you find and makes sure that you get relevant ones.

Thanks Notso. That explains some of my searching problems. The other problems, I think are age related

Vince,

I haven't read the previous post as yet but I reckon it you try for a full 2" you'll be right on the stop rubbers (I had an 04 STR as per the profile page and wanted the same). Another consideration to get a bit more clearance overall is to up-size the tyres to a 255R75 16 up from the R70's. This will give you at least an inch and a more robust torsion bar up front will comfortably give you the second inch while leaving plenty of front end travel between the stops. It will throw your speedo out by 4 to 5 kph less (ie; shows 96 kph, actual 100 kph) and increase your fuel economy.

Cheers. Mick

Thanks Mick. I will be changing the torsion bars as I still have to put the winch onto the bull bar, and I think that will drop the front.
I had a look at the mentioned posts and it seems that Bucky had the same problems as I do. Main one is the height of the tow hitch. It is so low the CT sits with a nose down attitude. If I turn the hitch over it gives the correct attitude, BUT ia can't open the tail gate of the ute.
I will look at changing the tyres when they have worn down.
Thanks again
