New Suzuki SJ/Blitz 4x4 Suspension Setup

The Suzuki SJ uses leaf springs in its standard form.  Tough, durable and simple they may be in there current form they are far from the cutting edge of suspension design.

For the BNE Blitz 4x4 project car we decided to create our own conversion to coil over shocks.


The above pictures show the intended method of preventing sideways axle movement.  The Panhard Rod.  This shows that by triangulation the axle cannot move sideways but with the right positioning can retain up to 45 degree articulation.
