Kamchatka, Terrano R50


Recommended Posts

  • Ermak changed the title to Kamchatka, Terrano R50

But of course, why didn't I think of that....put solid front axles and lift like crazy . That's a sick ride dude . Is that the front diff off the older model terrano?

It's the suspension setup used on that front Patrol axle.  I presume those are OE arms, but was the axle modified, or was it already LH drop?

 

Either way, would love to see more pictures of the suspension and axle setup!

Axle was modified.. Mmm... inverted, flipped. I don't know how to explain it correct in english

Awesome.  Inverted/flipped is understood, I have seen it done on other axles.

Impressive! That's (or was) powered by a QD32Eti. Is it still running the stock diesel engine or any mods?

Not perfect, but works.. And i found and check little crack. I think that all this construction need more stiffness, cause sometimes i have shimmy

Damn, that's some serious structural mods. Looks a lot cleaner too without the struts.
What about the rear? Are you using stock drive shaft? When it's articulated that much the wheel usually travels more to the front. But in your pic it looks to be nicely centered.
Man this makes me want to blow new life into my 2.7 TDI terrano with a lift like that.I might give it a try someday.

Rear stock drive shaft was extended, and axel was a little bit turned.. In general, changes in the back are not so big

Thank you @Ermak!  I acquired an SAS project (axle + Nissan Frontier truck still with IFS) the other week but haven't committed yet to completing that project.  I've been exploring a very similar setup on my Pathfinder using Land Cruiser or Mitsubishi Montero Sport (Pajero?) arms instead.  I needed this inspiration!

You're welcome. I'll be waiting pics of your project.. But 37s tires are too small for me and i have plans to grow soon ))

Haha, you might be waiting a while!  The Frontier needs engine work, and I won't make a decision on which truck to SAS until it's running.  The previous owner acquired most of the parts needed to do a simple leaf-under swap on it, so it's tempting to just continue that project.  But, doing the Pathfinder just seems far more appealing.  Not sure I'd go to 37" tires.

 

Have any tips, lessons learned, pros, or cons about your setup?

Hmm.. I don't know.. Maybe because i haven't subframe anymore i still need more stiffness..

Good point.  How'd you do the motor mounts, and was there any additional crossmember added in place of the subframe?  Looks like the panhard tower adds some cross support.

I didn't touch motor mounts. They are the same. And no more crossmembers exclude panhard tower.. That's problem, i think. Subframe is  more stiff construction. I'd like to see another similar project))
