Haha yep. That was a few months after I had got out of drifting.

I've been trying to figure out how to make this long travel somehow. It appears that 740's and 95+ 960's share the same ball joint. This means that I should be able to use a 960 knuckle and hub assembly on my car. I'd have to figure out the tie rod ends. Then I was thinking about using a wrx front strut or coil over mounted to the 960 knuckle or a long travel fox coil over up front with a fabbed mounting point on top and bottom. I want 10" of travel all around. I'd have to fab lower control arms as well. I want to complete this before the year is up. Any ideas guys? Other than buy a long arm jeep haha.

I've been thinking about longer travel but rebuild the front completely with custom made linkage. Have been looking at those Stadium Super Trucks for inspiration but I have no garage or workshop so it's a bit to big of a project doing out in the dirt under the blue sky.

I know what you mean. I wanted to do a ford style trailing arm since it seems to work well. I don't know how the steering would work but it would be a good way to get a lot of travel out of the front. A four link in the rear would be a piece of cake. The rally anarchy guys get 10" out of the rear pretty easily. I'd love a prerunner 740.

Sweet. That's the direction I like to see. I'd like to do that with my 940 because its already a fun off- reader. And not too nice. I also have a blown head gasket Ranger 4X4 short box that would like to donate parts. I thought about just putting the 940 on the Ranger but that's sorta white- trashy.

May be getting a new set of 235/75R15's on the rig today. I discovered (as suspected) Sunday that my gland nuts were a bit loose causing some clunking up front. Put some grunt on them and now it is much better. It is very fun to drive now as I am getting to the point where I am not afraid of breaking it. And it cruises around 80 on the highway quite nicely. I'll update this if/when the tire deal goes through today.

Well somehow I find the stupid deals. Grabbed a set of brand new 235/75R15 Wranglers for $154 out of pocket. Found someone that bought my set of used 30" tires for $300 for his Montero. The same tires I got with the Canyon wheels for $124.

Now if only I could find the same kind of deal on a corner lens....

You made profit on the previous wheels/tires... maybe it's time to pony up for a new light.

Does a 245 count? I've got a small ~1.5" lift with some 195/75/14s. It's actually in need of new front struts at the moment, and when I do them it'll be pretty tempting to cut those strut tubes/raise the spring perch.

It's proved pretty capable as-is though, but the other day I finally found out that I need a G80 in there bad. Once I get a little more cash one will go in with 3.73s to replace the 4.10s it has now. I've even got 3 big rally lights too, I'm just waiting until I get the time to make up a bracket/run wiring for them.

I finally got my 30's on. I've been doing some serious research on long travel front end. I think I'm on to something. If anyone has relative pictures post em up!

I've been thinking about this project for a very long time.

I'm lusting after '98-'99 v70XC's to do this to. Think it's feasible?

I'm not adventurous enough to weld on struts, but I'm fairly confident that the XC90 struts are longer and heavier, and would fit the v70...I think. What say you all?

Henrik, nice to see you here! I'm still a huge fan of your 945. I watch that vid of you driving to Deep Purple all the time. Quite inspiring.

If I can pull off the lift on a v70XC, I want to slap a bigger turbo on it, and go OD green and flat black for paint.

Also...how badass (if not impossible... ) would it be to squeeze one of those 5.0 v10 TDI Touareg motors in there...

Hoping you guys are still working on these projects... Here's some older info from Swedespeed that I was talking to folks about:

The original equipment:


The XC90 struts (clearly longer and beefier):


So...in conjunction with some longer springs (say, Jeep Cherokee springs), I could raise the ride height without having to weld anything, right?

Also been thinking about wheel well trimming, and adding bolt on flares. Is it possible to gain anymore tire clearance in there? I think the front would be easy, but the rear door would pose a problem.

Removing the chunky plastic bumpers and bolting on tube prerunner style bumpers would be sweet too.

Been lurking v70R auctions lately...since they're AWD.

Anyone still around here??

Think something like this would fit, with spacers/adapters to bump out the wheels?

I like the sound of the beefier struts. Have no way to know if it will work until you try it.


What's going on with that long travel shiz you are working on up there??

What year Cherokee springs did you originally use on the rear of your wagon imlolin? Also what were the shocks you used originally made for? I have a 740 diesel wagon that I'd like to lift. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
