Post HELP! Vitara brake union / bodylift / compatability
Hi, I've been working on Jimnys too long and can't remember what Vitara brake unions are like? The one under your right foot on the side of the chassis rail...

I've made some simple brackets for Jimny ones and just wanted to check whether Vitara ones are the same, so figured this was the best place to ask -

That's my (ZookBOB) one, can anyone confirm that the Vitara one is the same / very similar?

TIA

Dave :hal:

Wotcha Dave.

Vit ones are similar, held on with two bolts. for a 2" body lift, we've always just used the lower union hole with the upper bolt. Does that make sense? It's just held with one bolt.

=)) I'll have to have a dig through the archives then! ;)

My memory is going with age, and spending the last five years fiddling with Jimnys...

I don't remember ever needing to fit a bracket?...

:-h
