    Up, up and away!!! :D

    What is the ideal height for suspension lift on SUVs? Daily driven plus weekend offroad.

    And if you can also include what brand of suspension and shock absorbers readily available here in our market. :D

    daily driven siguro mga 3" , not sure lang sa availability sa atin at kung may local made tayo .

    dito pang araw araw nila mostly sa mga nakita ko is 5 - 6 " ang height and ProComp sikat , mahal nga lang pero sulit at tatagal talaga . kaya mataas kasi sa mga full size trucks ito or SUV .

    DSM619::: sir, kahit imported items basta meron. :D I know americans tend to over do things. :P Is 5-6" lift advisable for city driving? Iniisip ko baka di na magkasya height limit sa closed parking spaces.

    Ungas,

    Heto po ay recommendation ko lamang for a budget lift. This will yield around 2"-3" over stock without using expensive lift kits.

    Just buy 2" up coil springs from Ride or Armark. Balita ko mas mura sa Armark dahil ang isang pares ng rear springs ng Pajero ay Php10K sa Ride pero Php7.5K sa Armark (ewan ko lang kung anong brands iyan). hehehe. Reputable brands include OME, Ironman, etc.

    Most aftermarket shocks from OME, Rancho, Bilstein or KYB will still work with your taller springs.

    Dahil mas mataas na ride mo, you can stuff 33" tires underneath. O, ayan lifted ka na. Just don't forget to re-aim the headlamps and get the front wheels aligned.

    2" from the springs + 1" from the tires = 3" (okay, a little less maybe). :mrgreen:

    OTEP::: That's what I was thinking of, mga 2-3 inch lift. Di kaya pumanget ang porma ng Safari? Then I imagined a 5-6 inch lift :P Baka naman magmukang "Clown Bus" instead of an Offroader, hehehehe :D

    About the brands in suspension, my choices are either TJM or OME. (Any other brands available?)

    Then for the shocks, Bilstein, Rancho, TJM or OME. (Procomp din sana kaso di yata available.)

    I'm confused, which is which in exchange for the real value of money and quality plus riding comfort. :roll:

    As for the tires, kapapalit ko lang ng front tires same size nung dati 32x15.

    actually nung una ko makita ang mga lifted na 6" at may mga 38" tires pa ito kala ko di street legal , pero andami nila at legal pala . yun nga lang limitado ka sa space sa Pinas sa parking , sa lane na dadaanan mo at baka sa garahe sobrang taas na di kasya .

    maganda ang suggestion ni sir Otep , basta maganda ang suspension , need not too high , basta malaki rin gulong mukhang ang tangkad na eh .

    di ko talaga familiar ang mga brands at components sa offroading , mag uumpisa pa lang ako kaya nga gusto ko benta kotse , tapos pipilian ko na lang full size na truck .

    Ungas,

    Ok na ang 2-3". Kapag mga 5"-6" para ka nang yung mga tiga-rural America niyan. Hehehe. Baka hindi ka pa magkasya sa parking buildings.

    TJM is a good brand. Pero sa Pajero kasi Ironman ang usually available, eh. Saka sa OME shocks pa lang ako may experience (a good one at that).

    Okidok, 2-3 inch lift :idea:

    I wonder when the TJM parts will be available soon? :?

    OME products are avilable as of now, but they're priced a bit high. ( I wonder if I could get it lower? Need help. :oops: )

    I might attach it with Airtek snorkels too. :D

    Though I'm still open with different brands, I need more infos with each brand and their characteristics.

    ungas::: pare cant wait to see your new improved Patrol! 8) Honestly, Once your three angles improve baka maging LC killer na yan! :twisted: Among the three angles, mukhang weak ang Patrol sa Rampbreakover angle. Meron ka bang actual figure nito based on the Manual? I Just want to compare notes :D Sa Pajero V44 kasi approach = 42deg, Departure = 27deg, rampbreakover = 24.5deg


    (wag na sana may humirit ng Patrol vs LC vs Pajero! my 2 cents lang po yan)
