Default NM Pajero

Hi I am trying to lift the front of my NM, I have 2" King springs but still after more lift as i have 33" Tyers but can't get full lock as they rub, I was thinking of strut spacers or coil spacers but not sure what way to go.

Thanks Chris

Yes you can get strut spacers, BUT... (There's always a but)
You'll end up running out of suspension drop and you'll never get it to align properly..

Best way is to just trim the plastic parts the tyre is rubbing on. No point straining the CV's any further and losing droop by adding more lift. I've trimmed mine and it doesn't rub at all now.

Coil spacers will just extend the shock too far from its comfort zone so strut spacers probably are the go. but have a read through this.

Thanks for the help, I think I will give trimming up the plastic parts first and see how that goes.

Thanks again
Chris
