Re: GQ Spring Length

Looks about right. Unloaded its 420, so 260 looks good.

My other option is to make the top bucket adjustable on a rail type setup till I got it pinned down and then just weld when the height is sorted. But I don't like that setup much.

Something like this

GQ Spring Length

Calling the GQ guys for some info please. I was donated a set of standard GQ coils for my SFA build by Offroadbiker. Now the Sani weighs 1100Kg's on the front end. How does that compare to the GQ? My big issue, I have very little means to lift the Sani up on the springs to check what the compressed ...

Re: Kumho MT51 - Black friday special

Thanks Peter. Let me see how things go this side. I have two spare rims here at the moment, and will only want to take the tyre. My priority right now, however, is to get the Sani sorted for the trip. Lots of work to do, and spent the day on the road just sourcing some more steel and bits and pieces...

Re: Kumho MT51 - Black friday special

I have a BF 33 for you David. Lots of thread left, but it is quite old in years and has a plugged sidewall puncture. However it has been lying under my workbench all the time, is mounted on a pro-white wheel and has been holding pressure for probably 7 years. Rim can be included. Morning Peter Than...

Re: Kumho MT51 - Black friday special

I'm back in Gauteng fort three weeks getting the Sani ready for it's next life phase as my work truck down on the West Coast. One of the things I am short of, is a spare tyre for the trip down. If anybody has a 33 or 35 x 12.5x15 old tyre laying around they are willing to donate/get rid off, please ...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Spanner in the works, well kinda, but it's good news. I have been confirmed for a contract in Cape Town, with a very good likely hood of expanding it into my own business. I need the Sani so bad down there as the site is one big sand pit. 8km from the coast and virgin ground. Ground surveys have sho...

Re: Patrol porn......

Probably mostly in Australia. America hardly saw the Patrol. Russians are just plain crazy with what they do, and how they treat them. Then, lets not forgot about the Arabs, but they are more into just making them ridiculously fast and powerful.

Re: Terrain Tamer brake discs (rotors) on the Iron Maiden

Where do you buy these disks and pads? Will they have for a 1980 Safari (MQ Patrol). Also just realised you guys run disks on the rear. Wonder what it will take to convert the heavy duty H260 axle to take disks. I consider my upgraded axles to have the "upgrade" in brakes I need under the Sani, but ...
