Welcome to my up-to-date (2022) 2002 Pathy build!

 

Bought this 5 speed 2002 SE with 370k km (180k km on the engine) for a work wheeling trip and decided to keep it after its superb performance...

After getting back from the trip with a solid high center, torn up tires, and a bent frame + barely intact power steering line I decided to
keep it,

lift it,

protect it,

give it real tires,

and maybe some more?

Lift

After that adventure, which included scraping the bottom along rocks for hours straight, the first thing to do was a lift.

 

I went with the classic:

LRD 9447s + Bilstein 33-185552 in the rear

OME 2928 + KYB Excel-G struts and strut mounts front + 2x K90474 camber bolts total.

I bought the fancy proper strut spring compressors and other than one 14mm camber bolt head shearing (after the nut was off) and a bunch of drilling things went pretty smoothly.

In the rear I got an extra 2.5" unloaded and and extra 2.7" when loaded with ~150lbs. Not sure what the front ended up as but I'm super happy how it sits (irl the bodyline angle isn't quite as much as seen here).

 

I also have 1" spacers for the front and rear but I'm not sure if I'll ever install them.

 

The ride is great... other than the front shock topout. I had read about this briefly on some other pages but not thought about it too much as its rarely mentioned. If I was to do it again I would go with the OME MD or even light duty springs front front and just pair it with a 1" spacer. I find the topout really annoying when bombing down a 4x4 road and don't really understand why more people don't complain about it. I suspect they might just drive slow offroad.

 

Hopefully the front will sag a bit to give me more travel and I can make a 0.5" spacer for the front to compensate
