Hi
I have a mitsubishi pajero that came with a factory lift I don't know if its a body or suspension but its just the rear so the nose is facing down. Anyone know how to level it off. I can't find any lift kits for this vehicle.
Any advice would be appriciated.

There is nothing offered as "lift" for these vehicles but you can crank the torsion bars to provide 1-2" of lift to level it off. Some companies (OME or Sway-a-way) offer torsion bars that handle better then the factory units.

Check over at 4x4wire.com for instructions on a torsion bar crank. After the t-bar crank you will need an alignment done. I could do it for you if you're in the GVRD.

Thanks for the reply, I live in Coquitlam, how much would I be looking at to crank the t-bars?
Cheers

If you brought it to me it would take about an hour, so $50. Then you would need to take it for an alignment. My shop is in Abbotsford, there is an alignment shop out here too that's good and they charge about $100 for the alignment.

Actually, ther are a number of companies which provide suspension lifts for Pajeros. The easiest / closest suppliers is ARB's (OME): http://www.arbusa.com/uploads/PDF/accessorizeYourRig/mitsubishiMonteroPajero.pdf

Of course, you can shop in Australia on ebay for many more options: http://shop.ebay.com.au/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=pajero+lift&_sacat=See-All-Categories.

If you are only concerned with leveling it, you can also buy spring spacers: http://shop.ebay.com.au/i.html?_nkw=pajero+spacer&_sacat=0&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_dmpt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&_odkw=pajero+lift&_osacat=0.

You can also do body lifts on them, but body lifts also put a lot of stress on the body mounts. There is a Pajero for sale here in Abbotsford which has a 4" body lift. You can get away with a 1" body lift but 4" puts way to much stress on the mounts.

Hey thanks for the info, as you said about the stress body lifts put on the bushings and so on do you think suspension lifts are better in terms of stress and wear on a vehicle. Do you know a ballpark cost for just the labour on installing a suspension lift. Plus I heard that you have to do many other modifications from the suspension lift like steering column, etc. What do you think?
thanks
