Its got some all terrians on, yeah this one gets driven everyday and we have doone a few trips and we are planning some more only local but at least there weekends away.

To get it back to taziiy specs it needs metal bar work all round twin locks, but the trips we done so far it has handle pretty well with just the centre diff lock.

Well I had some time to spare so I thought I would put the suspension in :dance: that soon turned to :001_9898: the front wasn't to bad as they where pre assembled but the rear was a whole other thing.

Setup up get started and then it starts to rain nothing to worry about you say, it does when you are working in your driveway as you have nowhere else. :mad:

ok some before shots

the difference between the originals and the new ones

Then we got to the rear besides toyota making a huge mistake in very minimal access under the vehicle and no access through the body it was real hard to get to the top of the shocks but after finally getting a spanner in there you turn the shock to get them out only to have the thread snap due to wear and tear on the old shocks

A shot of the rear springs

Anyways after what I though would be a one day job took me 2 and then as I un done the front control arms and rear trailing arms not to twist bushes I then managed to completely stuff the front wheel alignment so I manage to adjust it the best I could by eye to get it drivable for a trip to the wheel aligners on the monday (which didnt make the MRS happy as it was her daily drive luckily I have a really understanding boss as i gave my company car to the mrs and the boss picked me up from the wheelaligners and gave me his car to use for the day). Anyways here is the finished result before it went to the wheel alingers.

I must admit that I find the "soccer mum" Prados annoy me, but I really love the look of them when they're lifted!

That rear shock has me intrigued Taziiy - could you please measure from the middle of the lower eye up to the top of the top hat? And from the middle of the eye to the spring seat base? Just had a thought on a set of new rear struts for Ruby Scoo...

Cheers
