Re:"Jimny Lean" was created by tommy
Hi there,just bought my first Jimny at the weekend there and have noticed that it leans to one side.
It has has been fitted with 2" ES3000 shocks and springs.
My question is with regards to the spacers you buy,do you buy for front and back as it seems to lean from both?

Thanks Tommy.

Bits for vits do a single spacer for the front drivers spring for about £20
Sorts it out a treat because I've just done mine
Very fast postage from them aswell

I have this issue to, if your looking from the back it noticabley leans to the left! Ive looked on bits for vits at the spacer your talking about and noticed you can get a set of 4 which boasts a 1.25inch lift. would fitting all 4 still leave me with the good ol jimny lean?! mines not lifted either.

that was my thinking to, what would i then have to do to sort the lean if i fitted all 4 spacers? another question regarding the spacers, when you fit a lift kit its longer springs and shocks but in the case of these 1.25inch spacers your effectively making the spring longer but not the shock, does this cause any issues regarding the shocks as they are still stock?
they also do the rear shock extension/re-locators which look and sound interesting but do these make any difference on a stock jimny?

OK lads this is the Jimny Lean question again but in the right thread . Question is how many spacers and how much additional lift on the drivers side to balance it out?
Looking at these but open to recommendations www.jimnybits.com/jimny-superpro-15mm-spring-spacer.html


This is how much sag is in the system.

I'd go with a 15mm spacer. I think I put a 25mm one on mine and it reversed the lean to the other side!

It evens out when I get in I think!

kirkynut the 15 spacer still didn't sort the problem so I said id have a look this morning . 6 pm downed tools. In effect the PO had the long springs on the front and the longest of them on the passenger side and the short springs on the back. Please tell me that is wrong . I took them all off and installed my jimny bits springs longest on the rear and the longest one of those on the driver side. Shorts up front is that correct? Please tell me it is .
