Angle grinder will get 38s under... :)

35s should be no problem, Im sure that Kelly I think it is off Melbourne list runs 35s on his bread box.

You probably wont need more than 4inch lift with a bit of body.

I just checked out the 6 inch kit at 4x4 systems , sounds like a go 'r . Ill call them tomorrow for a price , I also saw an article about how its harder to fit a body lift to a car with air bags , I still wondering about that one , someone in this forum might be able to shed some light my way .

4wd Systems in SA.

Do a search in the archives on it, I cant remember details, but he never got satisfaction with his deal.

When I did my lift kit, I NEVER ONCE got a call back, or reply to an email....

Went elsewhere.

If your keen, contact Liam at www.bigballsoffroad.com or Rod McCormack at Total4wd Center in Epping Vic, Both BRILLIANT to deal with.

I could probably live with cutting the front , its the rear that sends a shiver down my spine . I was thinking P reds in foam cell . I seam to be happy with them on the 80 series .

Konis are quality,

Ranchos are price.

My ranchos didnt last 6 mths, adn I had a knee reconstruction, so did around 3 trips on them. Not the only one to find they arent that good.

Your money...

Hi Eric
Saw a 100 some time back with atleast 4 inch springs, and 15x35" tyres.
If the front diff is solid, it will take whatever an 80 will. (a 105 is basically an 80 chassis with a wider body) The exception is the ABS brake lines that will need to be lengtherned.
I have an 80 with 6 inch Dobsons and 35's, 38's will fit and articulate with a 50mm body lift aswell. The best way to lift it that high is to invest in a 5 link front, as the caster goes way out and so does drivability. Mine has had the front mounts on the diff lowered,(cut and rewelded) but caster is still far from perfect, and it does tend to "tram track" a little at speed . Then there is driveshaft angles that cause vibration etc etc etc. I would keep it to 4 inches and do a body lift if possible.
