My frontera build plans

Unread post by CUSTOMFEVER83 » February 15th, 2011, 5:14 pm

I've got a 96 (swb) frontera. it's stock standard for now. I'm looking at getting the calmini 3" full lift kit for it, 2" body lift, 33" tyres, drop in a 2.6 petrol rodeo motor maybe turboed, steel winch bar and winch, HD rear bar, HD rock sliders, and many more mods to come. I'd love to hear any feedback,info,advice,comments on what anyone thinks of my plans.

I'll be adding photo's as I go from start to finish

very eager to see how this turns out, as i have a 97 swb frontera and am looking to make similar modifications. do u have any idea how much the lift (suspension and body) will cost?

buy direct from calmini & save heaps... snake racing are just a distributor, you'd be silly not to by direct with the way the aussie dollar is at the moment.

its not stupid at all mate, okay its where you take the arm on top of the ball joint and remount it below its a good idea and gains lifted ifs trucks more travel well it would make a 3" lifted ifs trucks front suspension alot flexier. just do a search theres plenty of good write ups on how to do it i don't think my explanation for was to good.
