Finally back home. Though I'm not overly happy with how the rear is sat. It's actually sat level but it looks like the rear is down. I prefer the rear up abit. It's abit difficult with it being custom and ligh, there's no off the shelf parts that will work, all trial and error

Looks great mind! Could always add a small coil spring spacer to adjust the height.

Either that or it’s coilover time :lol:

Sometimes I just wish I had something standard that you could just buy off the shelf parts.................... Oh wait :screwy:

I do plan on buying some new rear springs anyway so might just get some spring seat rubbers and see if that picks it up abit.
I'm feeling a 16v now though I won't lie, especially after driving my green one about, keep the blue one for some road and non damaging green lanes

The 16v is a good swap. It’s the way I’m going with Blue now.

What springs are you running? We have some pretty much new Gen4 Jimny springs in the workshop as we fitted a 2” lift to my Dads.

Standard jimny fronts all round
I think now the green one is ready to be used I'm going to properly look into the 16v swap
