KiwiTerrano Posted May 31, 2020 Share Posted May 31, 2020 Having upgraded from my r50 to an r51, on the whole the r51 is a better vehicle. The main thing I miss from the r50, is the insane rear end flex it had. I had mine set up very nicely, with flexy lift coils and 11" travel Procomp shocks with no RSB. The r51 just doesn't have that same feel offroad. What I propose, is to swap the solid rear axle from a D40 Navara, and use a 4-link suspension design with triangulated upper links. This should give me a vehicle with a nice flexy rear end, at the tradeoff of some diff clearance VS the IRS. By using a d40 rear axle I also hope that the ABS, TC etc will still work. I also plan on fitting the front diff from a navara too, as the diesels have a slightly better diff ratio for the 33" tyres I'm running on my petrol pathy. Thoughts?
