19/7/08 - Rebuilding the Trailing Arms

You will have read the article (HERE) about the problems I found with my trailing arms - so now on with the story of how to refurbish them.

Replacement bushes are available from Suzuki, for each trailing arm you require two axle end bushes and one body end bush.

The part numbers are:

Axle end: - 42682-81A00
Body end:- 46213-65D00

Be aware that originally Suzuki would only supply the complete trailing arm, they would not supply the bushes separately. Some dealers still think this is the case, simply quote the bush part numbers to them!

The picture below shows the new bushes. As you can see they are encased in a steel sleeve which is a real pain when it comes to pushing the old ones out.

07/07/08 - Cargo net mod from Chris

A modification sent in by Chris - Many thanks.As my Jimny is also my daily drive, one of the things that I don't always enjoy is the lack of useful storage space. This led me to conclude that the concave space in the rear door needed to be used, otherwise it is wasted space, so I made this little modification...The net cost me £6.31 from ebay (including postage) and I've used about 1/4 of what I bought, the bungee cord came with the net. The little tabs are made from cheap nylon webbing, to make 8 of them used about 1.5ft of strap. By taking the door card off I was able to drill through and use washers on the back side to give the whole assembly a lot more strength, which I hope will prevent the nuts from pulling through the plastic door card. It's ideal for holding waterproofs, hi-vis vests, gloves, shopping bags etc, and they will fold flat into the door if the boot is full of other stuff Chris

04/07/08 - Smiffy and Macs ASBOJimny

Here are some pictures of Smiffy and Macs  ASBOJimny build. As you can see they started with a standard Jimny only a couple of weeks back....

So why "ASBOJimny"? Well its registration has the letters ASB in it and for those of you who are not in the UK an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) is a warning issued to people who are deemed to be acting "Anti Socially" - so I guess this is going to be a monster!.....
