Time for an update on the Ultimate Suspension, I’ve done 1500km now and is settling in.
Hit the 1000k mark at Hamlin Bay last weekend, so re-torqued in the carpark. Surprised how much I got out of the U bolts on the leaf springs.
I’m only looking for a 25-30mm lift above standard, but the old suspension was pretty well sagged so was expecting it to step up a bit.
Heights (bottom of 15” rim to top of guard or tray).
Front drivers Start: 685mm, new 765mm, now 760mm
Front pass: 670, 760, 730
Driver rear 760, 850, 843
Pass rear 760, 848, 843
This is without my 108kg in the seat so I’m guessing that will even things up.
Very happy, very stable and confidence enhancing. Feel like attacking roundabouts instead of rolling through them. Still a bit stiff in the rear but ally tray and ‘glass canopy are very light, pretty sure will settle more which is fine and I’ll have diving and camping gear in most of the time. CV’s are good angle, I reckon the sway bay rubbed slightly on the spring twice early on hasn’t since.
Not happy with the tow angle of the tinny, but I’ll play around some more.
