Looking at doing a full rebuild on my Mu. Has anyone used this suspension kit or something similar that would be interchangeable

I think the early jackaroo is the same as MU. Rodeo has heaver rear springs and longer torsion bars

This has come up so often. Jackeroo springs are too short and the ride is terrible plus the risk of inverting a shackle.don't know if rodeo fit but my guess is a 90ish model should be the same. Get the eye to eye measurement and compare it to how yours is sitting now. If the shackle has to be vertical or less to fit or if its past 45deg back then you need different springs

I have lovells lifted springs with 90mm shackles. Has no sagged in 4 years, best springs I've had but only con is they are fricken hard like a flatbed ute over bumps.
