Body Lift/LVV Cert

Postby codynapper » Sat Oct 28, 2017 4:03 am

Hey Guys,
Been hunting on trademe and found a 2" body lift, which has me wondering, Has anyone on here used one of these kits and if so did you require a cert and did you need to extend anything else when you lifted it?

Cheers lots

Body lifts always require certification. In saying that though 3/4 of body lifted cars get wofs without cert or issue. The catch comes when you swerve to miss a kid and your truck falls over. Mr Plod says illegal mods heres a bill Insurance says illegal mods we cancelled your policy 10 seconds before the crash.
Some trucks need the gearstick bent but not all and everything else should be fine. Check the brake lines seatbelt mounts and steering linkage though

I'm currently putting in 50mm spaces in the mounts, I've run into bit of a problem. The smaller rear mounts that's the one closer to the rear wheels, both bolts were seized and I've snapped one off, ive left the other attached.
If I cut a hole above each mount in the floor of my boot will I have access to the top of the nut? plan to die grind/cut the nut off.

This is for a 2.8 MU 1991

The other way would be drill and retap from the bottom. Both ways would be a horrible job but less chances for wof man or certifyer to complain if you dont cut the floor near the mount
