Ruuman Posted August 22, 2007 Share Posted August 22, 2007 Hi all, I've just purchased an Isuzu 2.8td to put in my two door rangie replacing a 3.5 carb V8 on an LT95. I'll be purchasing an adapter kit from conversion and precision as I understand these are the best suppliers to use for such things. The engine swap doesn't phase me too much (famous last words) but what's starting to concern me is getting the spring rates correct on the front suspension, I want to keep the current lift at 2+", but I understand the Isuzu is about 75-100kg's heavier and I also have a milemarker on there too. Any idea's what sort of spring rates to go for? The trucks used mostly off road, but I'd prefer not to get sea sick on land if you know what I mean Ideally I'd like to stick OME springs and shocks around, but the budget is a little limited, so which of the cheaper spring makers are the best of the bunch? For my next question, any one have experience of Isuzu PAS pumps, I currently have a 2 pump setup (which is rubbish) and wish to just use the existing Isuzu pump to drive winch and steering until I decide what I'm going to do in the long term. Winch just needs to turn for the second, don't care about speed. and lastly I don't have the glow plug relay, is it OK to just rig this up to a switch and hold it down for 4 seconds before starting or are these cheap items and I might as well just spend the cash and do the job right. thanks for your help.
