Dutch Big Jimny was created by Henri Berends
Hello from Holland.
Last week i've regenerate my 2004 Jimny with a 3inch suspension-lift of Zanfi.it.
The kit has springs, shocks, ajusted pannhard rods, new arms (front), three longer brake lines.

The transmission skid plate is an ORA part.

These are progressive springs. Generally 4x4 springs are very stiff. However the are very comfortable as compared to other springs.
Supplier Zanfi.it has theze springs developed in the past six months and recently they've been delivered. Specially designed for Jimny.

The suspension of the Jimny will still function well on the road.
But I must mention that I have not ridden much with the Jimny. I have the suspensionlift-kit only a week under the car. But I have also reinforced front and rear panhard rods mounted.
I expect a lot from it.

In general it means that the more they compress, the harder they get.
As you can see from the pics, the distance between the coils are farther at the bottom of the springs than at the top where there's only little distance.
