PostForum: Nissan, Mitsubishi, Isuzu (inc Vauxhall) & Daihatsu   Posted: Wed Oct 15, 2014 5:24 pm   Subject: Sportrak what to look for
Probably a bit late as I don't come on here so often, but I would check:

1. Rust on the chassis
2. Rusty rear arches
3. Steering box leak
4. Head gasket failure
5. Weak rear leaf springs
6. Pl ...

I think when I did my 2" lift the only thing I had to change was the rear brake line for a longer one, free off the handbrake cables and extend the gear levers, although I guess you could possibl ...

I have a complete conversion kit for a Vit, but I don't think I used the engine mounts etc (not a Vit)....I will check and let you know and we can sort something out if you're interested. Smile

Not a fan of KL myself but they are a lot better when run with lower pressures off road. All comes down to if it's a daily driver or just a weekend toy.

It's not just the vehicle weight you have to think about, when the ****** is buried in the mud you have to move all that also.

Normally I figure about a 9000lb winch would suffice for something Vit ...

What are you using the truck for, I've tried the KL71 and they are useless at P&P sites, more a green lane tyre I reckon.

Very smooth on-road though, so if it's a daily driver they're worth a l ...

If you look under the chassis, the bolts go into v.large washers that have the nut built (welded?) onto them. No reason you couldn't use some v.large washers and nylocs though. Smile

Have you thought about a Vitara, cheap and parts are plentiful. Not sure about you but parts for sportraks are quite rare where I live, so always end up having stuff posted for silly money.
