    Thank
    sorry, you still hitting the TOP bump stops?
    Cause in my mind that would mean crank the torsion bars some more.

    Could you take a pic of current set-up?
    Or how it sits now?

    I have some Camil front shocks. they state the height must be 720mm from bottom of the rim to fender. so I will be adjusting the height to that. it is about 750 to 790 (I think) at this stage

    I checked mine and it is 760mm.

    I have read a lot on the vibration issue and it seems that the front drive shaft is too short to accommodate the lift and sits at an angle of more than 3 from the transfer shaft and the diff's input shaft. I will measure tomorrow and drop my suspension until I get to the 3 angle. I do not have the money now to install a CV joint in the driveshaft.

    I checked the angle this morning and as best I could measured it. It was about 5. I therefore dropped the suspension to about 730mm measurement and it is now at 3.

    I see the transfer case's front drive bearing has a little bit of lateral play. Most likely long overdue for replacement. Will replace it and then see what is what from there.

    Thank you. I will most probably start working this weekend.

    Today I managed to loosen all the bolts of the trailing arms and remove the panhard bar and one trailing arm. It appears that the Bushes are not as worn as what I expected. I affirm my suspicions that the Bushes where replaced somewhere in the life of the vehicle. Thus far it was only the upper control arm Bushes that was shot. Now the fight to press out the Bushes

    Cut the ends of the rubber off with a hacksaw and then it comes out easily with a socket pressing just inside the housing. Use a bench vice, one side the socket, the other side a piece of pipe with ID a bit larger than the housing.

    I have found the vibration issue and the solution is not that simple. You can read about it here.
