    Lift kits available at

    • your local industrial plastics retailer
    • friendly machine shop
    • 'bolts & nuts' shop
    • friend who can wield a spanner

    Cost ? Should not exceed R1500-00


    Do this in phases:

    1. Buy 1m of UHDPP (ultra high density polypropylene) or Polyacetal rods from Maizeys or other. Dia you need me finks is 65mm (measure your current mountings).
    2. Ask a machine shop to cut them into 50mm pieces with 10mm dia holes.
    3. Buy the 12 HT bolts from your local "Bolts & Nuts"
    4. Lift body and radiator
    5. Lift bumpers

    Thanks to Gorman for sending me this document It describes a Gen2 lift.

    It seems the original website from which this was gleaned is no more. If anyone knows a different link please let me know so I can acknowledge the original author.

    Maizeys do not do UHDPP or UHDPA, only UHD polyeth (R347pm for 70mm). What kind of difference will the material make? I see some people use alloy as spacers.

    Damn that looks like a lot of work for 5cm! But I must admit the difference in looks is amazing

    In some countries metal spacers are obligatory.

    Some people use ice hockey pucks.

    UHDPE rods should do it.

    Look in the Yellow Pages under Engineering Plastics.

    Here's a better copy of that write-up.

    Good reading here.

    Simon i dont think any difference as i did my landy . I would think a 40mm lift would be fine. Remember the steering rod to the steering box and also the front and rear bumpers need to be lifted by the same spacer height. The only advantage is if you want to fit larger tyres.

    The steering needs no mod for a 50mm lift.

    Are your sure I know on a landy you cannot do it.

    Yes, I did it and all the write-ups confirm it.
