Suspension / Re: SH Rear Suspension (Again)
« on: July 11, 2018, 06:35:26 AM »
I have contacted Pyro. Apparently BC can go plus 20mm up on standard although although all I want is standard height. Definitely not lower nor bouncy/hard/dropped.

Hey Barry, I am 100% certain they will not go 20mm higher than stock.
I have them installed on the highest setting and I would say they are 20-30mm lower than stock height.
Its important to remember that you need to leave a safe amount of thread remaining in the lower perch of the coilover (25mm for A-Arm and 80mm for McPherson) if you had to wind them to the entire way out sure they may be longer than the OEM shocks but you cant drive it safely like this. I can take a pic of my car and send it through, set to max height front and rear.
Ride however and grip even with my old geolanders is amazing....

I found the change from my SG to SH scary in terms of handling.

After the rear SLS gave way they were replaced by OEM non SLS shocks and X springs. better but still so much movement.
Its actually not so much the movement as it is the under-dampened feeling, the car feels very unsettled at speeds, once it enters a corner and becomes composed grip is good.

Recently I upgraded to BC coilovers, a massive difference, actually night and day. car handles great but the con is height its low now.
Thinking the next step may be 10mm spacers on the front and rear.

How much would pedders cost front and rear? and whats the height change?

I use a finger type wrench and throw two elastic bands on the filter so they can grip, works a treat.

What speeds are you driving at?
If I stick to around 110kmph I get around 500km. 120+ around 420km.
Open road mileage got better after getting the car tuned and even better after fitting a larger turbo (sits off boost now at cruising speeds)

General Chat / Re: Opportunity to buy a 2007 XT. Should I do it?
« on: February 05, 2018, 07:38:23 PM »
Buy it....
70k is a deal if you ask me especially considering you have some insight into what has been done before.
The CEL is probably the secondary air pump, can get the car tuned and have the unit written out in the map.
You can try import the timing belt kit from rock auto the dollar is also

Hey, do you need roof racks to install this? Or can it bolt onto the roof rails?

Hey there and welcome.
S-ed very very nice, price seems on par with what I have seen dealers advertising them for (not sure what they are selling)
Option two is too expensive imho, also the auto is a decent box even in 4 speed guise.

What are you plans with the car? Camping? And how do you drive?  Let that guide you on your best option.

That's for sure, a few times I have paid customs duty at time of delivery. Guess it depends on the value.

 Same thing happened with my order, DHL want you to pay the customs duty prior to final delivery.

Nice.

The correct answer is 2-4 weeks.

That's not wrong, I have my turbo upgrade sitting in a box waiting on Chett's next CT visit.

I would think somewhere around R110k to R130k condition dependent. Sad reality especially if you purchased new.
