1300 samurai
« on: Nov 17, 2010, 07:32:01 AM »
for a 1.3  carb samurai lwb, frp top (NON-USDM):

I wanted to use toy hilux axles, with either 4.56 or 4.88.

I'd like to have reverse shackle, probably with some used toy springs too(I may find my old toy springs that were removed from my doublecab hilux. I want to see others with similar suspension... is this ideal for a rig with the shackle is up front(stock)? what

I am removing the frp top after it ran... the thing just sat for 3 years accdg. to the previous owner... I suspect the floor is rusted..... seats are not in good shape....lower portions of the side panels are visibly toasted..will be tossing out the stock bumpers.

can anyone point me to a good direction. new to sammies.

.... and also, I'd like to do spoa, but the stock sammy springs are 50mm width, unlike the toy's which is 60mm.... if i will use toy axles, should be firm on using the 60mm width  springs?

hey texcrawler, are all 2wd toy rear leafsprings are also 60mm width? why did you chose 2wd? is it because those are spua and more curved? how many leaves did you chose?

did you used these 2wd leaves up front on your sammy?

thanks in advance, sorry but I can't seem to find the details of how did you install those 2wd toy leaves on your sam

I don't have a width of the spring. They are the same as the waggy or 44044. I ran the rear 2wd because of the amount of WB I could get out of them. I run them f&r. The center pin is offset 4". I used the main leaf and military wrap and mixed in a waggy spring.

this samurai rear axles are a little to the passenger side, toyota's centered... will this be an issue? .... I read other swaps like this and I don't find any discussions about it.

Use a Toyota CV D-line for the rear. You can buy the adapter from Low Range offRoad.com for the Zuk T-case.

should the cv part (double cardan joint) be put on the tcase or diff side?

stock toy rear d-line has slipping spline shaft bolted on the tcase side, while the front d-line has the slippping on the diff side.

I used CJ springs on mine they are a little shorter than the Wrangler's and you can use the stock hanger locations with missing link shackles.
