Well, here are the pic's

The tyres are 265 x 70 x 17 and they stand 800mm high, thats 31,5 inch muddies.

The lift kit I had fitted was from West Coast.
Great guys, made it all look just too easy.
After a few hours, I was on my way back home.

Unladen heights, but with half tank of fuel.

I had the Iron man kit fitted.
At first I thought it was too high.
The ride is marginally more firm, but as the old springs and shocks had 225k miles, I am not really surprised the new springs are more firm.

The front has gone up 58mm thats 2,25 inches
The rear has gone up 87mm, thats 3,5 inches

They did say the rear will settle a bit, so I expect unladen height at the rear to be 2,75 inches.

Graham, that looks really good :mrgreen: Your 120 is starting to look like a very serious machine!
Has the handling changed much?

Cheers,

Little firmer, but maybe that is because the old suspension was tired with, 225,000 miles on the clock.
