Thankyou for all the feedback I received, once again you guys have been most helpfull. I installed a TR52 long ranger tank yesterday. I took my time and all went good. So far there are no leaks and everything is working good. The difference in height at the rear is 20mm. 800mm before old tank was removed and new 180 lt tank was installed. 780mm after new tank installed and filled with 188 lt of petrol. The spare wheel in the cargo area for now. The front of the cruiser has lifted by 15mm. It rides good at this point. Having said that, once I start loading the back is bound to drop more. Maybe airbags if it is bad.

Thanks Ross, Yeah, I made a boo boo there. I was going to do that then I thought that thread has already gone so far back that no one would re-visit it. Makes sense to me now.

Good work Michael, take it one step at a time. I would suggest that you try and simulate a 'full' load well before you go out on a trip, then if you do need to adjust the suspension you will have time up your sleeve. When I fitted a new rear bar with duel spares my vehicle felt very light in the front. I now always run down the rear fuel tank first and it does not take long to 'feel' right again.

pending on how much more weight yoy are going to add, i would recomend old man emu constant 400 or 600 rear springs before airbags. as is now, 400's if you are going for a full bumper replacement wheel carrier 600's
