Re: My SJ410QB

Absolute beauty! I have a very clean '85 but not as original as yours (engine swap to 1.3, newer seats, odds and ends). Re value I'd been looking for a friend very recently. RHD are super-rare now - more LHD across Europe and really good ones there asking around 12 - 15k. Friend found a super-origin...

(SJ) Removing door hinge screws... help!

Hi all - done a search here but can't find what I'm looking for. Which is how to remove / extract the the big cross-head screws holding the door hinges on. I have an impact driver but dare not use that as the hinges bolt through thin steel panels so I'd expect damage from that. I have ordered a full...

Re: Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

Drawn a blank everywhere on OEM spec springs. +40mm easy, but standard no-lift impossible (so far). I'm considering having Jones Springs (Midlands somewhere) recondition a set of originals. Either take mine off or buy some from a breaker (think I have a source). QUESTION: anyone know spec of the spr...

Re: Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

Spoke to the guy at Llama just now. V helpful, good bloke, but doesn't do springs anymore, got fed up with hooligans and unjust warranty claims. Has suggested I speak to Jones Springs (Midlands somewhere) - I'll try that, report back. Everything else I've found (OLd Man Emu, Iron Man, another Aussie...

Re: Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

I’m pretty sure Old Man Emu also used to make stock height as well as +40mm, not sure if they still do the stock height ones but might be worth checking as well. That's the second recommend I've had for these (someone on an FB SJ forum) so I will investigate. I've phoned loads of UK places now, no ...

Re: Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

This place should be able to help. They will ship to the UK. https://www.suzuki-diely.sk/sk/suzuki I checked out their website and was amazed how many products they had and at very reasonable prices. Excellent recommendation. I called them yesterday - loads of interesting stuff but don't stock SJ s...

Re: Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

Excellent Scottie, thanks for help. I'll try that link and also investigate Maruti again, basically try all those options.
I also wonder if Trailmaster maybe still make them but no-one in UK stocks.
If / when I succeed I'll report back.

Finding new standard (OEM) leaf springs for SJ410

Anyone help please - want a set of 4 new leaf springs for my SJ. I will also replace dampers, bushes etc, but finding leaf springs is proving difficult. I know you can get India made Maruti ones on eBay cheap, but I'm not sure about quality. Jimnybits used to do the German Trailmaster but don't anym...

Anyone in SE (Kent) fixes SJs??

Hi all - had my trusty '85 SJ410 over 8 years now, used very regularly on road and all very good except needs front wheel bearing (O/S) adjusted and I don't have suitable tools. Is there anyone in my area can do this kind of thing? I have new 50mm nuts and lock washers, all the Aisin FW hub gaskets ...
