    Hey Greenhorn. Bog standard no lift at all. Of the 3 loan Tritons they gave me, one had a vibration, a MPI petrol. I did report this to them but ja..........

    Mikeren, this is only evident on very smooth roads, and I became more aware of it on rougher roads because I knew what to look for.

    I had a phone call from a friend who is too scared to let me drive theirs in fear of discovering the vibration. Their friend has bought a new manual version and he has the same complaint, reported to Mitsu East Rand. They had a look and attempted to fix but failed. They are now looking to Head Office as well to resolve. This guy and I will exchange notes soon soon.

    Does the AA still do independant testing and verification reports?

    [QUOTE=Clyde;1103346]I used to have a Pajero Sport and LA Sport Centurion did a lift kit for me which I was very happy with.
    Modified Toyota spacer/leveling kit upfront. (35mm)
    Old Man Emu shocks and springs at the rear. Ride was fantastic.

    Finally I did the front suspension lift on my Pajero, definitely a difference in handling, can not quite understand why, because the suspension was not altered in any way, only slightly lifted.

    Now I have to do the rest to get it perfectly level, backside about 15 mm lower than the front, any suggestions?

    I want to do it myself, don't feel like spending money on that, Uys, you spoke about conveyor belt sometime ago, is it a difficult job?

    Hi guys

    I just bought a 2010 facelift Pajero Sport with a long range fuel tank and pump fitted.

    The guys says it droppes the spare about 3inches lower than normal..

    What effect will this have on Clearance, consumption, etc?

    Is there a way to rectify this? Is it possible to remove the long range tank?

    Hi Guys,

    Another stupid question, as I am quite new to the whole 4x4 scene...

    Why would I need a dual battery system?

    Hey Dieselfreak,

    Firstly, welcome to the Pajero Sport family! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

    You should easily be able to remove the long range tank if you need to but unless you're planning on doing some hectic offroading the slightly decreased departure angle shouldn't be a problem. The lower spare tyre still sits higher than your diff so it doesn't really effect ground clearance.

    Don't forget the OE tank is only 70 litres which is my only gripe with the Sport so if you can leave it in rather do so. With the standard setup you can only manage between 500 and 700km depending on driving conditions.

    As for the dual battery setup, if you plan on running a 12V fridge or similar appliance then it becomes necessary. My Sport is wired to run an auxillary battery pack in the boot section of the car and I only use it when camping. Just remember that any electrical installation must get done by a professional!

    Thanks for the valuable info Koppycat

    I have no doubt I will love the Pajero sport as I come from a family full of Pajero's and Triton's.

    I won't be doing any major offroading until end 2013, so until then all should be fine. By then I will probably have a roof rack and then I can just put the spare on top of the car to take care of departure angle issues (some more reading on the forum gave me that solution)

    Fellow PS owners
    Pajero Sport 2011 3.2d
    From Richards Bay to Nambia trip planned for Dec 2012. Leaving in group with a Fortuner (towing Xplorer) and Ford (towing4x4 trailer) as companions.
    The PS will carry 2 adults and 1 teenager and 1 tobeteenager..... Will be towing a Conqueror Companion and planning to visit Augrabies, Ais Ais, Sossusvlei, Luderitz, Windhoek, Swakopmund, and returning via Kgalagadi

    Current fitment:
    Pajero Sport : Bridgestone Dueler H/T 265/65R17 112S
    Caravan: Bridgestone Dueler A/T 245/70 R16 107S

    Will not be doing any serious off roading, but certainly some serious gravel roads.

    Naturally, I would have liked to put some serious takkie's on, but budget constraints.....

    Seriously though considering installing a snorkel (yes, i know not for water but for better ventilation of enjin...)

    Let me know what you think.

    Hi Henk, firstly welcome to the forum and congratulations on your great taste in vehicles

    As far as your trip and mods are concerned, the route you are planning is completely possible in a standard Sport so unless your tyres are needing replacement and you drive lots of dirt roads in your day to day life neither AT tyres or snorkel are a necessity. A colleague of mine did almost the exact trip you are planning in his standard Sport and he didn't have any issues at all. As far as AT tyres go, I'm a self confessed BFG AT fan and have had them on since new but there are lots of options out there, just search the tyres section of the forum. I did fit Goodyear Duratrac's (265/70R17) on for 4,000km but took them off because the aggressive pattern did affect fuel consumption a bit. I've got them lying in my storeroom if you're keen to buy them?

    I have been looking at fitting a snorkel but at R5000 plus I've come to realise that I can't justify it even though I spend a large portion of my driving on dirt roads. I prefer the airtech snorkel to the safari snorkel as it isn't as long above the wheel arch and LA Sport are the agents and are in your neck of the woods In Empangeni.

    As far as towing goes, the Sport is great and on my last trip I got 7.3km/l which isn't too bad I feel but with the 70 litre tank it doesn't give you a huge range so if you're keen to spend some money rather look at an auxiliary tank perhaps?

    Good luck with deciding on what to spend your money on and enjoy the trip!

    Cheers, Jason

    I see that you have fitted windshields to your Sport, I have been searching all round to find some, but no success, please give me the name of the dealers you bought from, I want to contact them.

    Thanks
