Hi all.

I have bought a shogun pinin and have found bits you can buy from the shelves to lift it.

you need 2005 rear xtrail struts for the front of pinin. 45mm lift once its settled. but will give a lot more clearance in between the tire and the spring mounting cup. which will allow you to lift more on tire size

Don't think they are different between engine sizes.
Reuse pinin springs and top bearings.
The very top of the shafts are 12 mm instead of 15 mm like pinin so i bought some bushes to correct this. 15mm x 12 Mm i/d x 20 mm tall but they where a bit long and i had to cut them down a little

Also knuckle clamp is 4 mm too wide 2 off 2 mm spacers on each one will take up the difference, i used 2 thick washers on each bolt


1995 shape Mazda 323f front springs go right on the back of the pinin.
this will give about 2 " .
I have also been told Mitsubishi L200 rear shocks fit the rear and give a longer drop but i have yet to try this out

other items to consider would be to get the car aligned and tracked. the brake line bracket on the xtrail struts is different so i made a bracket for them

the rear brake compensator will also need to be adjusted when the car is lifted this is needed however you achieve the it
