Technically sj calipers don't change with age.....but from 88 they started building them in Spain with girling calipers so the ones listed as 88+ are probably just the Spanish calipers.

Yours will ...

I have a factory sj tow bar for sale for 50, it's not a receiver hitch style one though.

I'm in Wiltshire but could post, postage won't be cheap though.

I presume you are using the early Jimny box with the G series? you could also use an sj413 or samurai gearbox.

What flywheel are you using?

Vitara rears diffs are 26 spline, combined with these it should easily cope with 34-35" tyres as long as it's not a really heavy build.

If it's a 16v then it would need to be modded to run an 8v distributor if it's on a ca ...

I'm happy to go cash your way Wink What size tyres are you running? 413/sammy tboxes are the same ratio, they are geared slightly higher than the 410 tbox so it will lower the rpms at road speeds.

What size tyres are you planning to run? that's the one thing that will decide the gearing you need.

If geared correctly a 1.6 will have no issues. The only issue is (like Rich says) you need to sw ...

The key to running larger tyres is the gearing, not the power. Problem with vitara's though is that without changing the transfer box or running twin transfer boxes you are stuck with 1:1 in high.

The problem with the extensions are that although they make the shock longer they don't increase the amount of travel.
