    Since my initial lift I have done a few minor changes. The most obvious is the change from off road boss adjustables to Terra Firma adjustable shocks. I do like the new Terrafirma Firma shocks. They seem like a better build quality and much easier to adjust. There are only 4 settings compared with the Off Road Boss 11. Although towards the end the Off Road Boss adjusters seized and could not be adjusted. I now have extended bump stops on the front and have done away with the agricultural botched job of rubber spacers and brackets. The height sensor extensions have also been fine tuned. I started off with rubber extensions clamped between the cut shaft. This proved too flexible and resulted in height variations. I now have metal tube (brake line) sleeves with metal spacers (tent peg) cut to the correct length on the inside of the tube. The tube is held in place with stainless steel u bolts on each end.

    My lift is a 50mm Front with 35mm bump stops and 40/60mm rear with 50mm bump stops. I'm thinking about changing my height settings. The settings I went for were stock (plus lift) for Access Hwy and Standard and added two inches to stock for High as I have Gen 3s.

    My access is fine
    Highway I may adjust as on some occasions I feel as though it may have bottomed out but could be just the feeling of the harder Ge 3s.
    Standard I'm thinking to raise approx 25mm to be the mid point of what Ive calculated to be the mid point of my articulation. But just concerned uni joint binding may be a problem.
    High Ive never really used this as we don't have many river crossings here in the south of WA and at two inches above the stock setting it is not suitable for off road articulation.

    I'm also looking into reducing the the height of by bump stops at the front by 10mm and wondering if anyone else can offer advice on that. And if there any room to reduce the rear bump stops.

    I fit 285/75/16s when going away and just the other day finally found time to use the heat gun i purchased years ago to reshape the plastic guard moldings behind the from wheels due to occasional scrubbing while off road.

    I quickly learn t the best way to do this is to press the plastic where you want it to go, and then heat around that area, let it cool of then release the pressure.

    G'day Paul

    As you know I sold my blue P38 in December 2015, but before I sold it I returned the suspension to OEM and sold it as a standard P38 with mud tyres and a snorkel. I did, however, keep the lift kit at home as I knew I'd apply it to my current P38 at some stage.

    its very good timing that you ask about it now, it'll be by the end of the year that I fit it up.

    I think you'd get away with 10mm bump stop chops. If not, have you got a plan B if you start throwing faults or injure a bag?

    Keep us posted on how you go mate!

    Cheers

    Thanks Gary, sounds like the adjustable terafirmas are the way to go.

    Hi Keithy so you think I could go 10mm less front and back?

    yes plan b is I mostly switch the Eas off so if it goes out of range it dosnt register. Also carry some spares, I'd hate to bottom out a bag though.

    Wonder if anyone has.
