    Default SUZUKI SJ410 suspension conversion

    I have a Suzuki SJ410 with leaf springs that I would like to convert to coils. I have all the specs to do the job but can't find the specs for the coils.
    Most people would say that you are mad to convert something like that but as the car is not very respectable anymore(due to previous owners ) I would like to make a crawler of it. Something to play with and not having to worry about rolling it.
    Now if someone has done this before and can give me the pound rating as well as the thickness of the coils it would help allot.
    I will post pictures as the conversion get underway.

    The Jimny weighs in at about 200kg heavier than an SJ410

    Hi Charles,

    I've got streched jimny coils I bought from a guy on the forum if you want them?
    The coils are (apparently) 50mm longer than the stock jimny.
    I bought them and decided against it to fit these to my Jimny...
    PM me if you're interested to try them out...

    Did you ever come right with this? Any chance you have some sort of plan or specs on this?
