I've not had one, but here we go; Different front suspension arrangement *might* make things trickier. They're old = rust. I think its the cam chains that make the engine a bit of a gamble. if that doesn't bother you, or you can do it yourself, go for it, I think they're otherwise a pretty decent en...

Howdy. Mostly, there isn't much to choose between the two offroad, the suspension is essentially the same (except the V6). Now for the downer; I would only buy on condition. Rust kills these, and even the youngest vits are nealy 20 years old now. Find one with no rust and buy it, regardless of the n...

Whilst they may look simple, I'd carefully consider how you intened to make it. I had a 'Normal' style block on mine, and it played havoc with the prop angle. Loads of vibration, and killed UJs so quickly, I think I did 5 in one year at one point! A bigger issue is what it does to the handling; you'...

Congrats M&D, I'm sending you an imaginary prize of a blank cheque.

It's the balljoint attached to the central drag link, so need to undo and split 4 balljoints... should be a straightforward job, and the drag link should be here tomorrow. :)

hehehe...

not free to fix, a single part needed.

4 bolts to remove, and refit. :)
