Pics speak for themselves 














Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

Video of the internals working where you may see the 16% gear reduction.

Don't know how else to embed it so it comes up with a pic.

Rear hubs were stripped down to the axle and the 4 bolt holes in the axle flange had to be bored out for bigger bolt to accept an adapter plate & bearing carrier to take the rear face of the portal box.

Front axle was pretty much the same as the rear except with extra parts...







lets call this a test fit.

When on the car id seen the front axle had a little protection added to it but on the bench I saw a little more.

 









What the ?







With this being a Portugese car there's a Portuguese saying which translated is...
Leave the crap alone. The more you touch it ghe more it smells.
So I left these turds alone.

Axle stripped down ir was time for welding then reassembly.
 
These rod ends fit ontop of the double ended kingpins. Nice bit of welding by Dean to lengthen them.



Eirhervthese where universal brackets or I think Tibus wanted us to mount them tge tenderize of the coil seats & along the trailing arm mounts us 



A block that was in the kit (no idea why) was welded to the axle and so the gussets could bolt through it for easy removal & instal

These pics should finish off the King Pin Knuckle Gussets.

Me dreaming of extra trusting.
I lost it for a while & just found it. I may put it on the rear axle.

Rear axle gussets weren't as complicated.
they were welded onto the axle to bolt onto the rear face of the portal.

Time to get this buttoned up.
it had been all go... now time to make it stop

Brembo.... sporty. No idea what the rear calipers are.




Kit came with ABS sensors which are no use on mine.

.
This was the most painful part of the build.


Cutting of perftly good  pieces & binning them
