Spacer & shock lift coming soon
Like most of you, I have pondered for some time how to lift the underside of the Commander a bit further away from the ground and was originally going to go for a Rocky Road style spacer lift coz that's all there was.
I spent a fair bit of time on the various forums and the more I read the more I decided (a) 55-65mm lift was a bit too much for my needs and (b) I wanted more than just a budget boost if it could be done, for the long term sake of the car. Trouble was no-one did rear springs for the XH and no one did front shocks for the XH or WH. What I really wanted was 40+mm with new shocks that had a bit more travel than the stockos. Flaw in that plan was the much promised front shocks from Rancho and OME have never materialised.
I worked long and hard with a couple of recommended 4WD suspension places with nothing happening until one agreed to work with their suppliers to get stuff freighted in from OS or developed here as necessary, in all cases XH specific parts rather than just forcing parts from other cars into place.
My car will be the test mule for the final package and all will be installed in the next couple of weeks. We'll take lots of before and after measurements and lots of photos and hopefully by mid September all will be completed.
