:oops: I'm still learning about the 4x4 suspension. The most attention my previous cars received towards their suspension was lowered springs and new shocks :lol:

I wish my mu looked that clean under it must give it a pressure wash this weekend. Like pig said wrong end it sits at the back end behind the gear box.
But if you dont have a crossmember there he has a diffrent one that fits it.

I have just received a email from the guy who is selling them he is looking into the group buy postage for me .Also said it works great with leaf suspension on the rear in the isuzus. He also has a diffrent kit that fits a 2.8 with out a crossmember in them.

Group buy with surface post should be more reasonable

Im assuming the 2.8 without the crossmember would be the same crossmember as the 2.8 rodeo(aus) without the crossmember?

I dont really see how it would give that much advantage....If the left front goes up on a bank my right front goes down any way i mean the torsion pressure is pushing down wards all the time ????? If i jack truck up at the bull bar the wheels drop to there maximum ????? I have ditched my front sway bar too though..

super late reply, I know. all the energy and pressure from one wheel with standard IFS is pushed up onto the cross member, thus taking more weight, and making the other wheel just drop. but this dude's torsion invention transfers all that energy to the other torsion bar, pushing the other wheel down as one wheel is being pushed up. imagine a see-saw, you push one side down, the other goes up. kindof like a solid axle does, but its just a bit more complicated and less efficient... I don't see why this one pass NZ standards for vehicles, it should be all good aslong as you have the 1/2" pin for a Wof. anyone here got one of these btw? i want one

the end

The original bloke in US making up the system lost interest. However another has picked up the idea and is trying to do something with it again.
We need to watch here http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic ... &start=250

I'm keen to get a kit across and have a play

my mate made exactly the same kit around 10 years ago for his pajero, works well but he has gone though lots of torsion bars and the adjusting bolts, then the front end just falls down have dragged it out of the bush lots, dont know if this kit will do the same to our isuzu's
