Hey y'all, recently purchased an '87 WD21 w/ 130k miles. Was originally looking for a 4 door, but I fell in love with the 2 door when I saw it in person. The current suspension is old and saggy so I'm looking to upgrade. I'd like to run 31" General Grabbers (currently has the stock 30"). My goal is to give my pathy a slight lift (~0.5-1") to properly fit the 31" tires. Looking for a slightly firmer ride than stock, although I don't have a true reference because this suspension is shot and bouncy. I plan to keep the truck light - no front bumpers, no tire carrier, and I'm eventually going to remove the roof rack. Debating between: Option A: Bilstein 4600 setup (~$350) + Generic brand springs ($~120) = ~$480 My question if I go this route is, which springs would you recommend I pair with these shocks? The only springs I can seem to find are the Mevotechs & other similar inexpensive options. I found the OME springs, but if I get those, I feel like I might as well go with the full OME setup. Option B: Old Man Emu Nitrocharger (~$550) + OME2608 (Front) & OME2920 (Rear) ($~400) = ~$1,000 My question here is, are the OME2608 suitable for my truck? Vividracing lists them as compatible with pathfinders all the way up to 2014, whereas the rear OME2920 are 86-95 specific. Curious if anyone has experience with these setups. I'm set on either Bilstein since I trust their monotube design, or OME since I hear they're the cream of the crop. Would be nice to save by getting the Bilstein setup, but I wouldn't mind spending extra to get it right the first time. Any insight would be very helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank you! -Moykas
Suspension options AUS R50 pathfinder
starke_arbor posted a topic in Australia/New ZealandHi there, Anyone out there with a good knowledge of the suspension options available in Australia for the R50? Both for lifts and OE height upgrades? The common wisdom on NPORA seems to be AC, ARB and land rover rear springs if you’re real nifty. From what I’ve seen the market is pretty different over here (tough dog, EFS, dobinsons even etc.), and it would be great if someone with a some experience could summarise what they know in this thread?
